Expat Art on Show
May 7, 2008   
Article's tools:

Performance art group Komuna Otwock is staging an interdisciplinary exhibition of art and music by foreign artists living in Warsaw. Entitled Translations/Tłumaczenia, the exhibition runs from May 9 to 31. The project is part of the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue.

The exhibition focuses on the work and personal experience of the artists involved. Their works are artistic representations of the daily effort they undertake to translate and communicate between cultures. When assembling the works, some of which have been created specially for the exhibition, the organizers wanted to show the contribution of expats to the cultural life of the city and to encourage the artists to show off their art outside their own community of English-speaking foreigners.

The exhibition is also designed to show the growing importance of Warsaw as a place that attracts not only refugees and economic migrants, but also as a European, cosmopolitan and multicultural city.

Artists taking part in the exhibition include: Adrian Erlinger from the United States, photographer; Mark Mouck from the United States, director and actor, head of the theater department at the American School of Warsaw; Deborah Leistner from Canada, video artist; Robert Stubenberger from Austria, painter; Rachel Schmidt from the United States, sculptor and installation artist; graphic artist Gene Morris from the United States; Thomas Cumbow from the United States, ceramic artist, sculptor, and graphic artist; Gareth Saunders from Britain, a rock musician, who has released an album in Poland called Sliding, frontman of the Kapitan Da band; and Pamela Pecko from the United States, flutist and singer who teaches music at the American School of Warsaw.
