Katarzyna Klich (b. 1976 in Gdynia); studied Graphic and Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań (1996-2003). Now works at the University of Arts in Poznań as an assistant professor in the 11th Drawing Studio. In 2012 she earned her Ph.D. in Fine Arts at the University of Art in Poznań. In 2012 the Minister of Culture and National Heritage granted her an honorary badge: Distinguished for Polish Culture. She is the co-author of the Laboratory With No Address, which gathers artists of different views and ways of thinking, joined by the idea of art treated as a cognitive process. This translates into projects and exhibitions, such as “Time for Drawing”. Drawing as another way of thinking”. A national project based on monthly presentations and shows of 36 Polish artists representing diverse fields of art who yet treat drawing as a major factor of their artistic experience and creative process (e.g.: Jan Berdyszak, Jarosław Modzelewski, Krystyna Piotrowska, Koji Kamoji, Marek Chlanda, Maciej Szańkowski, Jarosław Kozłowski, Jerzy Kałucki). In 2015 she organised “Beyond the System” – a project depicting the operation of independent galleries in Poland from the 1960s through the 1980s (Galeria Foksal, Galeria Pi, Galeria El, Pracownia Dziekanka, Galeria Akumulatory II, Galeria RR) at the Arsenał Municipal Gallery in Poznań. She was an initiator of Richard Demarco lecture, “The Future of the European Cultural Heritage. The Anglo-Polish Cultural Dialogue”. A meeting was implemented within the framework of Academic and Scientific Poznań. She has exhibited her work at over ten solo and collective shows, e.g. at the State Gallery of Art, Sopot; BWA Bielsko-Biała; Arsenał Municipal Gallery, Poznań; Galeria El, Elbląg; Galeria At, Poznań. Katarzyna Klich lives and works in Poznań.
