Katarzyna Kobro et Wladyslaw Strzeminski
Une avant-garde polonaise

Past: October 24, 2018 → January 14, 2019

Following the exhibition “The Russian Avant-Garde at Vitebsk (1918–1922)” held at the Centre Pompidou this spring and continuing the museum’s policy of attending to non-Western-European avant-gardes, “A Polish Avant-Garde:Katarzyna Kobro and Wladyslaw Strzeminski” examines the work, artistic theories and social commitments of these two artists -a modern couple, discreet revolutionaries. Important members of the “progressive international” who have attracted considerable scholarly attention, they remain largely -and unjustly — unknown to the wider public.

The exhibition offers a comprehensive survey of their life and work, revealing the beauty of their art. Founders of one of the first museums of modern art in the world—the Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz, opened in 1931— Katarzyna Kobro (1898–1951) and Wladyslaw Strzeminski (1893–1952), were major figures in Poland’s constructivist avant-garde. Radical in their artistic positions, they gave expression to their ideas not only in their works but in teaching, publication and organisation.
