The collection mainly comprises paintings, but also includes photographs, drawings, videos and sculptures. Most of the artists were born in the 1970s and 1980s. Few Polish corporates have contemporary art collections and ING’s is considered to be the first.

The Foundation

Our collection in Poland is owned by the ING Polish Art Foundation. Its main aim is to support the development of Polish contemporary art. It organises exhibitions, runs art projects and educational programmes and publishes books.

The Foundation values the public function of art and loans its works to exhibitions in Poland and abroad. Its main partner is the Zachęta National Gallery in Warsaw, which helps to ensure the quality of the collection. In turn, ING Polish Art Foundation supports Zachęta with donations, allowing it to purchase new works.


The ING Polish Art Foundation was founded in 2000 to promote and support local contemporary artists. It is financed by ING’s operating companies in Poland.
