International Collage Art Exhibition in Poland Retroavangarda Gallery, Warsaw

The exhibition is extraordinary, as it reviews the most interesting and recent accomplishments in this field of art and, at the same time, it is one of the biggest collage expositions in Europe in recent years.

In recent years collage has become very popular, not only as editorial illustration but also as a work of art on its own. The exhibition shows how difficult this technique is, what are its types and how wide spectrum of artistic solutions can be achieved with it.  It also gives a chance of comparing the development of contemporary collage art in different countries and seeing how cultural differences can influence its form. Some pieces are truly astonishing in regards to their form, size and used materials. The exhibition will open on 12th April in Retroavangarda Gallery Jerozolimskie Business Park in Warsaw.
