The Best of the 1980s in Polish Art

No Stereotypes: Neue Wilde, a new exhibition at the Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art, comprises some of the finest examples of Polish art from the 1980s.

Art in Poland and many other countries in the 1980s was strongly influenced by Neue Wilde, an expressive international movement that took over the imagination of artists and viewers. Works from those years went on to become testimonies of their time and they also have a powerful and compelling impact on the emotions of present-day viewers.

Works shown at the Center for Contemporary Art include paintings by Tomasz Tatarczyk, Marek Sobczyk, Leon Tarasewicz, Jerzy Truszkowski, Henryk Stażewski and Stefan Gierowski; a sculpture by Grzegorz Klaman; a set of sculptures by Magdalena Abakanowicz; a video by Józef Robakowski; and a photographic polyptych by Zofia Kulik. Together, they illustrate the wealth and diversity of the Polish art of the 1980s. A display in a separate room consists of original photographs from the 1980s, taken from the archive of the Small Gallery at the Center for Contemporary Art. These include works by photographers such as Edward Hartwig, Antoni Mikołajczyk, Andrzej Partum, Andrzej Brzeziński, Józef Robakowski, Krzysztof Pruszkowski, Waldemar Jama, Andrzej ¦wietlik, and Krzysztof Wojciechowski.
