Spectra Art Space was established in 2012, as a venue for presenting and promoting the classics of Polish contemporary art.  The source and basis for the main exhibition programme is the private collection of Anna and Jerzy Starak, made available to the general public, constituting a unique review of the classics of Polish art from the second half of the 20th century until today. Spectra Art Space is a professionally prepared cultural event, modelled on tried and tested international practices, which naturally complements the activities of museums and other public institutions. Thanks to major contemporary art exhibitions, cultural events organised by the Spectra Art Space team, the concepts with respect to education, integration and promotion, significant in terms of the goals of the Starak Family Foundation, are being implemented in practice.

Presented art works form  representative overview of Polish art, created since 1945 to the present. Selected works are in the majority described as outstanding achievements of individual artists. The main element of this part of the collection is  an abstract painting of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, presenting a wealth of ideas and directions, and expressing the owner’s fascination with the works of creators of artistic life of that time.
