The power of the avant-garde
The Power of the Avant-garde
10.03 — 28.05.2017
Muzeum Nardowe w Krakowie - Szołayski House, Plac Szczepański 9
Opening: 9.03, 6 p.m.
The exhibition The Power of the Avant-Garde features works which have not been shown to the Polish public before, works by great artists, regarded already as classics in art history, such as Fernand Léger, Edvard Munch, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian and Alexander Archipenko. Works produced in the first decades of the 20th century are accompanied by the contemporary ones, dialoguing with historical objects.
These include among others works by David Claerbout, Jeff Wall and Sean Scully. Thus the question arises about the relevance of the avant-garde, about its sources of inspiration and its meanings, as well as its power of influence. The exhibition is complemented by the works of Polish artists: Katarzyna Kobro, Leon Chwistek, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, Władysław Strzemiński, Andrzej Pawłowski, Marek Piasecki and the present day artists drawing inspiration from the works of the Polish avant-garde classics.
