The Muzeum Susch, as it will be called, will have over 16,000 square feet of gallery space, and will open on January 2 with an exhibition organized by Kasia Redzisz, a senior curator at Tate Liverpool, presenting work by 30 international artists that question traditional ideals of the feminine and the body. The museum’s programming will draw from Kulczyk’s own collection, which includes such artists as Donald Judd, Olafur Eliasson, Andrzej Wróblewski, Alina Szapocznikow, Jenny Holzer, Rosemarie Trockel, Agnes Martin, Joan Mitchell, and Yayoi Kusama, but the museum will also present site-specific commissions and temporary exhibitions. The first of these commissions will be a new sculpture by Polish artist Monika Sosnowska that will stretch the entire height of the building.
