New Take on Modern Art

An exhibition entitled Polish Art Post-1945 on display at the National Museum in Szczecin takes a closer look at works by various Polish avant-garde artists who have aspired to remove boundaries in art and broaden the freedom of artistic expression.

The exhibition is an experiment that moves away from conventional ways of showing modern art which are usually based on a historical approach. The works are arranged according to eight topics-Alphabet, Matter, Light and Color, Artifacts, Word, Line, Energy of Tensions, and Humor.

The exhibition does not seek to show art from a historical perspective; instead, it is a game that all visitors can join, tracing the relationships between the displayed works and their own notions of art and anything they can see in other museums, galleries and textbooks on the history of art. Visitors may choose to follow a "map" marked out by the organizers or they can walk through the exhibition in search of works by one artist or another or try and arrange the works in a chronological order on their own.

The exhibition brings together works from three art collections in Poland's Western Pomerania region: the Contemporary Art Collection of the National Museum in Szczecin, the Contemporary Art Collection of the Museum in Koszalin, and the Regional Zachęta Collection of Contemporary Art in Szczecin.

Szczecin, National Museum, 27 Staromłyńska St., open through Jan. 27.
