This Friday, on the 22nd October 2021 at 6 p.m. we’re opening the Czasoprzestrzeń Zbioru/ Collection Space exhibition in the Museum of Architecture in Wrocław. Feel invited to come if you are in town!

The exhibition is the first presentation of the museum’s very own contemporary art collection after almost twenty years. The exhibition refers to the idea of the exhibition shown in the museum in 1977 and takes us back to the sixties and seventies, when the art collection was gathered in the department of ‘plastic arts related to architecture’. The collection was created from 1966 onwards, based on the belief that art and architecture are similar and interact with each other. The collection is dominated by works of rational character, based on criteria similar to the methods used in the exact sciences, and formally falling within the geometric abstraction trend. Occasionally, geometry abandons the orthogonal order, creating organic forms that make up utopian visions of artistic and architectural fantasies in which space can be perceived as both real and illusory.

The exhibition consists of over eighty paintings, sketches, prints, reliefs, spatial objects and models that refer to the revolutionary avant-garde of the interwar period, developing constructivist themes in the art of the 1960s and 1970s. Their authors are eminent Polish artists, including Magdalena Abakanowicz, Maria Jarema, Henryk Stażewski, Tadeusz Kantor, Alina Ślesińska, Wacław Szpakowski, Zdzisław Jurkiewicz, Jerzy Rosołowicz, Kajetan Sosnowski, Wanda Gołkowska and Jan Chwałczyk.
