ABOUT THE EVENT
7R Warehouse of art ‘Young art for the planet’ is an art and business event with a sense of responsibility to the planet, to people and to business at its core.
The event is organized by 7R - an investor and developer, specializing in providing innovative warehouse and production facilities. 7R implements ecological and technologically advanced buildings of the future that have become an integral part of their surroundings.
The 7R Warehouse of art ‘Young art for the planet’ initiative is one part of the company's pro-ecological approach to business. An important part of this project is a competition called Technology. Ecology. Human. Coexistence. 7R is inviting young artists to participate in this event which is organized in cooperation with the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.
The competition is an opportunity to see how art can influence warehouses and how industrial spaces can inspire artists. As the competition’s name alludes to, the organizers want to put forward the idea that people, technology, and ecology can coexist harmoniously. It can also act as a catalyst to inspire the artistic expression of the younger generation to produce interestingly applied art projects which focus on such ideas as natural resources respect, human well-being, and technology conducive to the protection of nature.
The winning projects will be presented during the 7R Warehouse of art ‘Young art for the planet’, which will be organised in Warsaw in the second half of 2022.
We have been delivering warehouse and production facilities to the market for a number of years. In our buildings we implement innovative, environmentally friendly solutions, because we believe that business should take responsibility for the environment in which it operates. When planning the future of our operations, we want to listen to the voice of the young generation. This is why we invite students and graduates of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts to participate in the competition.

Warehouses open to the arts
7R Warehouse of art ‘Young art for the planet’ is another opportunity for 7R and art to meet. An earlier opportunity for art and industrial interiors to complement each other was an exhibition of graphics, "3x7R", by an outstanding Kraków-based artist, Anna Sobol-Wejman. It is a series of works that was not only presented in a warehouse, but drew inspiration from this space.
In November 2019, a warehouse in the 7R Park Kraków logistics park in Kokotów near Kraków, was transformed into a gallery for a day. The industrial interiors’ simplicity and cleanliness meant that the visitors were not distracted, with art being able to take center stage. The "3x7R" collection is made up of three parts, each consisting of seven prints made using the etching technique. The opening of the works, inspired by magazines, was the first event under the 7R Warehouse of Art banner to combine art and business. The originator and initiator of the project is Tomasz Lubowiecki, Founder and Chairman of the Board at 7R SA.
Anna Sobol-Wejman is a painter and graphic artist whose works can be found, among others, in the collections of the National Library in Warsaw, Graphishe Sammlung Albertina in Vienna, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Musee des Beaux Arts in Chambery, France.
