“What is abstract art? How to recognize it? What is currently considered abstraction in the world, and how is it related to what I currently think of abstraction?” asks Prof. Stefan Gierowski, who was behind the idea of the exhibition.
The exhibition will feature the works of young artists (up to age 35) from various countries, such as Austria, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Their work will serve as a starting point for a discussion on the contemporary definition of “abstraction” in art, especially painting. The discussion will be held at the Gierowski Foundation, and a video recording will later be shared with the public. The exhibition is designed by two artists working in the area of spatial forms and painting: Emilia Kina and Bartek Buczek. Reflections on the condition of non-figurative art and how it is perceived by people today will be recapitulated in a publication accompanying the exhibition. The exhibition will include tours and workshops.
The artists and their works presented at the exhibition were selected by the foundation in consultation with Prof. Stefan Gierowski.
