Linda Pollack-”Everything is Exceptional” at WYSPA Center for Art, Gdansk Poland,
Linda Pollack is an artist and organizer interested in the culture of civic life and how exchange takes root and grows. In Amsterdam she worked for the European Cultural Foundation where her focus was developing projects addressing the war in former Yugoslavia, and arts mobility between east and west Europe. Stateside she founded and directs the projects Habeas Lounge and My Daily Constitution – mobile spaces that foster dialogue about law and shared civic life. She has served as the Freedom to Write Director for PEN USA, and has catalyzed a short term theater project that brought the likes of Pakistani playwright Shahid Nadeem and Indonesian poet Goenawan Mohamad to Los Angeles, as an antidote to the dearth of exchange in a post 9/11 climate. She has a degree in Financial Analysis from the Smead School of Business of the Penn State University, and Interdisciplinary Art from the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht the Netherlands and University of California San Diego.
This summer she launches the project “Everything is Exceptional” at WYSPA Center for Art in Gdansk Poland, and on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Everything-is-Exceptional/108104049282014?sk=wall).
