New exhibition at POLIN Museum!

 

Meeting with Frank Stella, one of the leading twentieth-century American artists

Between 19 February and 20 June 2016, POLIN Museum will host an exhibition of works by Frank Stella who is regarded one of the leading artists of the 20th century.

Stella’s works are displayed at the world most important contemporary art museums and reach dizzying prices at auctions, going into millions of dollars. Frank Stella has become a living legend. He is still creating art, while his paintings continue to fascinate successive generations of art lovers.

The exhibition features the extraordinary work of Frank Stella, and also tells the fascinating story of its creation. For the first time Stella’s reliefs from the Polish Village series will be set side by side with the prewar photographs and measured drawings of wooden synagogues that inspired them – a fascinating overlap and interplay of two seemingly distant worlds: that of the Polish wooden synagogue and modern American art.

On 19 February, we will have a unique opportunity to meet Frank Stella, one of the leading twentieth-century American artists.

During the interview, we will ask Mr Stella about New York’s artistic bohemian community of the 1950s and 1960s and the influence of that city on his works, about what and who he has been inspired by and in what way, and about his views on contemporary art. We will also discuss Stella’s astonishing inspiration with Polish-Jewish wooden synagogues, all destroyed by the end of the Second World War.

The exhibition Frank Stella and Synagogues of Historic Poland will be open from February 19 until June 20, 2016, at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.
