The experiments in the field of dance in the second half of the 20th century resulted in an expansion of the notion of choreography. Nowadays choreography, as a cluster of various practices developing on the verge of the arts, does not to have to be understood exclusively as composing the movement of bodies or notation of dance. Choreographic tools are being used to produce relationships between heterogenous elements in structures organising time and space as well as to inquire into their dynamics and intensities. Choreography enables us to think critically about corporeality, subjectivity, performativity and the conditions of art production. It can be understood as sensual analysis, on the intersection of what is intimate, social, political and aesthetic.

The exhibition "Frames of Reference. Choreography in the Museum" focused on choreographic practices and the modes of presentation of performative actions in collaboration with a group of Polish choreographers. The artists were invited to temporarily use the first floor of Museum Sztuki on Więckowskiego Street as a space for rehearsals and research. During their stay in the museum, during regular opening hours, they returned to concepts and strategies present in their previous works, looking for ways to open their practice to visitors. In the second half of April they moved from the exhibition space, leaving behind scores, objects, documents and situations to be experienced by the audience until the May the 8th.

The actions of the artists and their traces presented the possibility to re-think the meaning of movement, attention and multi sensual perception in our constantly actualised relations with and to the environment. What drives our attention? What part do emotions, affects and imagination play in our perception? How does the object of our gaze influence our actions? How are our bodies composing with the dynamics of movement of other elements in our reality? What is our frame of reference?
