The State Art Gallery in Sopot presents From Black Mountain College to Pop Art - a first-hand look at the evolution of avant-garde art practices in post-war USA. Taken from the collection at the Archiv der Avantgarden in Dresden, pictures, sculptures, installations, architectural sketches, photos, film and music and much more have been curated for the exhibition, providing important testimonials of innovative practices that were taking place across the Atlantic.
