Three exhibitions in the ICC

2012-09-03
Joanna Piech. Prints. Grand Prix IPT - Kraków 2009 (September 15 – November 18)
Joanna Piech’s exhibition shows the artist’s works from many years – both early creations from the 1980s and 1990s and later ones, including the prize-winning Czas na spacer (Time for Walk, 2009) and Wiem wszystko (I Know Everything, 2009) as well as engravings which have not been presented so far. The monochromatic works, characterised by impressive technique, show human emotions and experiences through fleeting moments and seemingly ordinary events. A constant element of the prints is the dense, pulsating grid of lines and points, which together with a lyrical mood forms a characteristic trademark of the artist.

Witold Skulicz. Graphic Art Above All… (September 13 – November 18)
The presentation dedicated to Witold Skulicz presents the vibrant and vigorous figure of the initiator and co-founder of the International Print Biennial (later Triennial) in Krakow. Viewers can follow the complex paths travelled by the dynamic and exploring mind of the artist, engraver, painter and designer. Several dozen prints and many paintings form a review of the artistic work of Witold Skulicz. The show is supplemented with a multimedia presentation of Skulicz’s activities at the Print Triennial and his work as a teacher at the Department of Graphic Art of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. It all combines to form a fascinating picture of an artist, but above all a portrait of a great man.

VIRIBUS UNITIS? Polish parliamentarians in the Habsburg Monarchy 1848–1918 (September 14 – November 18)
This exhibition showcases a collection of rare documents dating from the period from the 1848 Spring of Nations to the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It is a fascinating body of reports from the House of Deputies, official letters, deputies’ motions, photographs and drawings that reveals the workings of the politics of that period. It profiles many of the Polish parliamentarians, who in numerous cases held key political offices in the monarchy. Their historic role lay in their contribution to building not only prosperity in Galicia, but also the legal order of the future sovereign Poland.
The exhibition also offers an overview of the colourful political life of the multinational Habsburg monarchy, and even suggests analogies in present-day Europe.
