About:

11 graphic artists | 44 posters | 44 art pieces | 44 Polish artists from 11 art domains | Meet Polish culture anew.

The exhibition “The ABC’s of Polish Culture” is an attempt to summarize domestic art from the last century. The exhibition focuses on which phenomena have been successful around the world and why. We want to look for elements, which have proven to be popular with global audiences and ask what they say about us and our society.

The exhibition emphasizes the diversity of Polish culture, which contains a multitude of identities: ideological, religious, ethnic, sexual. We want show that Polish art is more diverse than what it is commonly perceived as. We also present the story of Polish culture, which thrived despite unfriendly political and historic circumstances while emphasizing, that its legacy is open to new, albeit critical, interpretations.

The exhibition presents the works of 11 young creators – female and male graphic artists, who interpret famous Polish works of art through their posters. Their works are the visual centre of the project. Together, we seek a supportive cross-generational dialogue, through which a known and already discussed past can become a basis for further artistic work, ensuring the continuity of Polish culture.
