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. The exhibition will showcase over 200 original, handmade pieces crafted by masters of collage from many, many countries, i.e.: Japan, Argentina, Bolivia, Guatemala, Brazil, Peru, Canada, USA, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Great Britain, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and more.
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.
The exhibition is organized under the honorary patronage of:
the Embassy of Argentina
the Embassy of Brazil
