Revolt on paper

The exhibition presents a selection of works by artists connected to the avant-garde artistic communities in the most important cities in the Second Polish Republic – Warsaw, Kraków, Lviv, Poznań, and Łódź. It traces out a map of the relations between the artists and reviews the rise and development of avant-garde ideas, from Expressionism to Formism, through Constructivism and Surrealism.

It’s a rare occasion to see such a selection of the most valuable works on paper from the collection of the National Museum in Warsaw – drawings, prints, photograms, and photomontage by Polish artists: Leon Chwistek, Tytus Czyżewski, Andrzej Pronaszko, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (Witkacy), Henryk Stażewski, Władysław Strzemiński, and Marek Włodarski.
