Art of the Street: The Masters of Polish School of Poster Art

Date/Time

Sep 20, 2018 to Sep 30, 2018

Description

Presented as a key international exhibition during 2018 Edmonton Design Week and 2018 Alberta Culture Days, this exhibition will showcase internationally renowned contemporary poster designers from Poland who breached the boundaries of conventional poster design. Undermining tradition and challenging their proclamatory purpose, Polish posters have inspired a new approach to the genre, one which has elevated poster design to an artform equal in importance to other forms in fine arts. “Polish School of Poster” is an international term coined to emphasize the world-wide fame and undeniable quality of Polish posters from the period 1955-1985. Hundreds of them are masterpieces of art appreciated by art critics, connoisseurs, private collectors, and public art institutions from all over the world. The exhibition is curated by Jacek Malec, Executive Director of Harcourt House Artist Run Centre.
