“Różewicz and paintings” exhibition at the Galeria Opera

08.10.2021

To mark the centenary of Tadeusz Różewicz’s birth, the exhibition “Różewicz and Paintings” was opened at the Opera Gallery in the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera. The curator of the exhibition, Marcin Fedisz, has selected painters and their works in such a way as to illustrate the poet’s long-standing friendships with the artistic community. The exhibition features works by such artists as Tadeusz Brzozowski, Maria Jarema, Ewa Kierska, Aleksander Kobzdej, Tadeusz Makowski, Kazimierz Mikulski, Jerzy Nowosielski, Jonasz Stern, Stasys Eidrigevičius, Jerzy Tchórzewski and Andrzej Wróblewski.

The paintings of these artists have been complemented by the words of Różewicz. Thanks to the cooperation with the Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation, the exhibition features seven works on paper by the artist. Some of them are sketches for Executions and “Mother with a Dead Child” – some of them have not been exhibited before and are known only from publications. These drawings show subsequent stages of Wróblewski’s thinking about the cycle of Shootings, they also show the artist’s unrealized ideas.

The first installment of Anda Rottenberg’s curatorial concept took place in 2018 at the Silesian Museum in Katowice (more at: https://www.andrzejwroblewski.pl/aktualnosci-news/szapocznikow-wroblewski-wajda/)

“We are very proud and happy with this exhibition. We will present Poland’s most prominent artists, whose works can be seen and admired in one place – a truly extraordinary opportunity. One of the main reasons for this project was understanding of how little Andrzej Wróblewski, who was born and raised in Vilnius, is known in Lithuania beyond a narrow circle of professionals and how awkward it still is to talk about the history of Vilnius in the whirlwind of World War II”, says Milda Ivanauskienė, MO Museum director.

Among the exhibited works are: Executed Man, Execution with a Gestapo Man, Execution, (Execution II, Poznań Execution), Sunken Cities, (Sunken City I), (Man’s Head on Red Background) and many more.

The exhibition is on view at MO museum in Vilnius until July 18.

“Andrzej Wróblewski. Waiting Room” exhibition online

21.12.2020

The Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation is making the Andrzej Wróblewski. Waiting Room exhibition available online. The show opened on 15 October 2020 in Moderna galerija in Ljubljana, one of Europe’s most prestigious museums of modern art. It will stay open until 10 January 2021. The exhibition is now available online for those who cannot travel to Ljubljana.

Andrzej Wróblewski. Waiting Room consists of 121 works created mainly in the years 1955-1957. Some of the works are inspired by Wróblewski and the art critic Barbara Majewska’s 1956 trip to Yugoslavia. A large part of the exhibition consists of paintings that have never been exhibited before or were last shown to the public in 1958. The exhibition also features artists from former Yugoslavia, including some of whom Wróblewski met personally, building a common context and often establishing a direct dialogue with the Polish artist. The curators of the exhibition are Magdalena Ziółkowska and Wojciech Grzybała from the Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation, and Marko Jenko from Moderna galerija. The exhibition and its online version were produced in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.

Thanks to the dedicated website ­­– waitingroom.andrzejwroblewski.pl, you can take a virtual walk around the exhibition and see all the works presented in the space of Moderna galerija – six rooms totaling over 800 m2. All the visitors are presented with a selection of texts devoted to the exhibition, including an essay written by Magdalena Ziółkowska and Wojciech Grzybała, entitled The Waiting Room as Harbinger from the publication accompanying the exhibition of the same title. It also features video content – Barbara Majewska reminiscing about Andrzej Wróblewski and their joint trip to Yugoslavia in the fall of 1956, the documentation from the exhibition opening and a video of the curators conducting a guided tour of the show. The website waitingroom.andrzejwroblewski.pl is available now in English and soon in Polish and Slovenian.
