Artists For Europe is the title of new exhibition of over 60 large photographs taken by Czesław Czapliński depicting outstanding and internationally acclaimed artists from Poland or of Polish descent. The subjects portrayed include sculptress Magdalena Abakanowicz, writers Stanisław Lem and Ryszard Kapu¶ciński, directors Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Kie¶lowski, Roman Polanski and Agnieszka Holland, composers Krzysztof Penderecki and Krzesimir Dębski, painter Franciszek Starowieyski, poets Tadeusz Różewicz and Fr. Jan Twardowski, and actress Krystyna Janda.

All the portraits, shot in both color and black-and-white, depict the artists in the places where they live and work. The photographs come with brief notes on portrayed artists and their work.

The exhibition is the result of many years of work by photographer, reporter and documentary filmmaker Czesław Czapliński. Born in ŁódĽ, Poland, Czapliński went on to settle in New York City and since the 1970s has recorded his meetings with special and famous people. “This is a pro-European look at Polish artists who have made a major contribution to contemporary European culture and civilization and whose legacy is still being discovered,” said Władysław Serwatowski, the curator of the exhibition.
