We would like to invite you to the International Collage Exhibition organized by Retroavangarda in Korekta Gallery, from 15th February to 3rd March 2018. It is the first edition of this event, marking the beginning of a series of collage exhibitions. The collection displayed in Korekta – a small gallery of contemporary art located in the centre of Warsaw, will showcase artworks of 24 artists from all over the world. Collage has been very popular for years, both in Poland and in other countries – there are many artists specialized in this technique. However, in Poland there has yet to be an exhibition showcasing so many great collage artists from all over the world at once.
All artists presented at the exhibition can also be found in Retroavangarda’s virtual Gallery of Friends, and this is where the idea of the event sprouted. Today, the virtual gallery turns into a real life event in the very center of Warsaw!
The curators of the exhibition are dr Anna Kłos (founder of Retroavangarda) and dr Dariusz Mlącki (owner of Korekta Gallery)
Artists taking part in the exhibition:
Allan Bealy (United States), Marta Caban (Poland), Da Collages (France), Vincent Demol (Belgium), Cinzia Farina (Italy), Antonio Martin Ferrand (Spain), William Hemmerdinger (United States), Aram Huerta (Mexico), Gene Johnson (United States), Anna Kłos (Poland), Marko Köppe (Germany), Suze LaRousse (Austria), Magda Łuczyńska (Poland), Koji Nagai (Japan), Wim Nival (Belgium) Mauricio Planel Rossiello (Brasil), Alvaro Sanchez (Guatemala), Anna Sandalaki (Greece), Christopher Scott (Ecuador), Jonathan Sirit (Venezuela / Spain), Pere Sousa (Spain), Magda Tertelis (Poland), Sara Vattano (Italy), Pola Vesper (Poland).
We have also prepared a special surprise. Apart from the contemporary artworks, the exhibition will also showcase an original piece by Kurt Schwitters – the 20th century master of international collage.
