Rytka documented exhibitions and events taking place in the Remont, Współczesna and Mała galleries in Warsaw, Wschodnia Gallery in Łódź and Labirynt Gallery in Lublin, as well as artistic plein-air gatherings such as the private Pitch-in Culture event in Teofilów in the 1980s. This part of the website also includes documentations of Zygmunt Rytka’s exhibitions. All the material will be gradually added to the site in each stage as the archive continues to be developed.
