Of the artists represented, five (Przemyslaw Cerebiez –Tarabicki, Danuta Dabrowska, Jaroslaw Eysymont, Waldemar Wojciechowski and Wojciech Zielinski) are based in Szczecin, whilst the other five (Andrzej Janczewski, Longin Sarnecki, Adam Simmons, Gosia Wlodarczak and Jarek Wójcik) are based in Melbourne. Yet they all are bound by one place – a city in Poland – where they were either born, have lived or worked.

The concept of the SMS (Szczecin – Melbourne – Szczecin) project revolves around communication, dialogue and bilateral exchange. Just as the abbreviation for Short Message Service (SMS) has become synonymous with communication itself, SMS the exhibition is a way of prompting and engaging artists from diverse areas in art practice and geography.
