Tadeusz Kantor: Avant-Garde Experiments

A new exhibition at the Spectra Art Space launches a series of events showcasing 20th-century masters of Polish art.

The Spectra Art Space is a new, experimental exhibition venue focusing on the work of contemporary Polish artists and of precursors of the avant-garde movement in the second half of the 20th century. Paintings and other work shown at the Spectra Art Space come from private art collections.
The latest exhibition, Tadeusz Kantor at Spectra Art Space Masters, focuses on Tadeusz Kantor (1915-1990), a Cracow-based painter, set designer and theater director who founded the avant-garde theater company Cricot 2. In his work as an artist, Kantor rejected traditional styles in favor of a world of his own creation in which he never tried to imitate reality, but sought an entirely new artistic language. Kantor pursued his ideas in surrealistic, metaphorical paintings and styles such as Art Informel and tachisme.

The exhibition at the Spectra Art Space comprises Kantor’s work from the collections of the Starak family and Teresa and Andrzej Starmach, along with a selection of rare Kantor drawings loaned by Lech Stangret, an art historian and a former Cricot 2 actor.

Until March 15; Open Sat. and Sun. 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Spectra Art Space, 6 Bobrowiecka St.; Free admission
