The wide variety of artistic textiles made in Poland is showcased at an exhibition entitled The Splendor of Textiles at the Zachęta gallery in Warsaw. Items on display include textiles representing patriotic and folk art, one-of-a-kind textiles and fabrics produced on an industrial scale. Along with textiles made using traditional techniques, visitors to the exhibition can see examples of experiments conducted by Polish avant-garde artists.

Exhibition curator Michał Jachuła has said the exhibition aims to highlight the potential of textiles as an artistic medium and revisit the legacy of what was known as the Polish school of textiles, which was highly successful at international exhibitions in the 1960s. The exhibition features work by around 100 Polish artists, from an embroidered copy of the famous “Battle of Grunwald” painting to tapestries which incorporate 3D photography.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Magdalena Abakanowicz, Tadeusz Kantor, Zofia Kulik, Józef Robakowski and Leon Tarasewicz.
