works from the Academy of Fine Art- Krakow

Jan. 16 – Feb. 23

Tropiciele/Pathfinders is a survey of faculty work from the Academy of Fine Art in Krakow, Poland in which 14-20 faculty are presenting works on paper ranging from contemporary applications of traditional media to the integration of technologies like robotic drawing machines.

The title refers to the search and the lack of a single, designated path of artistic exploration. This exhibition will be a collection of different artistic practices, showing contemporary ways of framing artistic problems through works paper. Seemingly nothing unites the areas of artistic expression of individual authors-but it is a testimony to the attitudes of searching for their place in the current reality.
