New Normativity. Wrocław ’70 Visual Arts Symposium
Aug 13 - Dec 14 2020
Pl. Strzegomski 2A (Fabryczna)
The exhibition is devoted to the 50th anniversary of the Wrocław ’70 Visual Arts Symposium, which took place in Wrocław in 1970. It is considered one of the most important artistic events in Polish art history after 1945. The exhibition organised on the anniversary of the Symposium is an attempt to look at it from several perspectives. On the one hand, it is important to show source materials in order to reliably systematise the course and results of the meeting. On the other hand, it will be crucial to critically look at the event, taking into account the contemporary artistic perspective. Historical and artistic issues will become an important starting point, alongside contemporary attempts to define the individual in relation to public space as well as aspects connected with awakening the audience’s visual awareness, urban planning and spatial planning. Over sixty artists will be featured in the exhibition, including Barbara Kozłowska, Zbigniew Makarewicz, Rafał Jakubowicz, Kuba Bąkowski, Irmina Rusicka, Kasper Lecnim, Barbara Gryka, Jarosław Kozłowski, Henryk Stażewski, Tadeusz Kantor, Jerzy Bereś, Paweł Kowzan, Zdzisław Jurkiewicz, Wanda Gołkowska, Jan Chwałczyk, Włodzimierz Borowski, Zbigniew Dłubak.
