Fangor. Multifaceted

Nov 18 - Feb 5 2023       ul. Jazdów 2
'Fangor. Multifaceted' showcases the work of Polish painter and sculptor Wojciech Fangor (1922-2015)and a retrospective of Fangor's career, including over 200 works from different periods of his life, including paintings, sculptures, and drawings. Fangor was a pioneer of (and major contributor to) abstract art in Poland and his work is known for its use of geometric shapes and vibrant colors. Born in 1922 in Lwów, Poland (now Lviv, Ukraine), Fangor studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and became one of the founders of the Polish avant-garde movement in the 1950s, influenced by the abstract expressionism of artists like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. Fangor's paintings are characterised by their bold colours and geometric shapes, which he used to create optical illusions and spatial ambiguities. Later, in the 1960s, he began to experiment with sculpture, using industrial materials like steel and glass to create minimalist forms.

The exhibition at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art includes a number of Fangor's most famous works, such as the 'M-65' series of paintings from 1965, famous for it's circular-spiral pattern, and a selection of Fangor's sculptures, such as the "S-1" series of stainless steel sculptures from the 1970s, characterised by their simple geometric shapes and polished surfaces. In addition to his paintings and sculptures, the exhibition also includes a number of Fangor's drawings, which provide insight into his creative process and the evolution of his style. A must-see for fans of abstract art!
