Finissage of exhibition Self-Identification and the curatorial tour

23.09.2017

We have the pleasure to invite to the tour round the exhibition "Self-Identification, Photographs from the Joanna and Krzysztof Madelski Collection" given by Anna Hekmat and Adam Mazur with the participation of artists such as Anna Grzelewska, Mia Dudek, Zuzanna Janin, Teresa Gierzyńska and Zbigniew Libera. The meeting will be held on September 23rd at 7 pm in the Gallery of the Fort Photography Institute in Warsaw, 99 Racławicka Street (building No 06).

 

 

The core of Joanna and Krzysztof Madelski’s Collection is the Polish photography of the second half of the 20th century. Its character is determined by newly added video works, the particular influence of young generation and a solid, spanned over the years relationship with artists who constitute pillars of the collection. The exhibition at Fort Institute of Photography reflects these characteristics starting with classic works from the cycle Self-Identification by Ewa Partum, showing videos of Katarzyna Kozyra, Agnieszka Polska and Alicja Żebrowska as well as a presentation of newly acquired pieces of Mia Dudek and Anna Grzelewska.
