An exhibition in the POSK Gallery to accompany the 'Art of the Bloodlines. A Century of Polish Artists in Britain' in Ben Uri Gallery and Museum - open until the 17thof September 2017.


Crossing Borders.

New frontiers. Boundaries of the mind. Crossing countries, continents, oceans.  Pushing the borders of freedom, thoughts of the past, hopes for the future, colours, shapes, new friends, new life. Sweeping prejudice, reluctance to conform, fighting the enemy, fighting own kind. Refusal to give up. Hope. Barriers to freedom, barriers of the mind. Time stops, time travels on. Is this forever? Never-ending journey. Crossing borders…

This exhibition showcases a small selection of Polish artists working in Britain today. It spans generations including those who arrived in 1930’s like Topolski, through the war displaced survivors, later arrivals who trickled through restricted Polish borders after 1960’, the Solidarity emigres and now, the latest, youngest artists with fewer restrictions and more opportunities who connect with the past but cross their own borders. The exhibition connects to ‘Art Out of the Bloodlands. A Century of Polish Artists in Britain’, currently open in Ben Uri Gallery and Museum.

Exibiting artists:

Feliks Topolski, Alexander Zyw, Marian Bohusz Szyszko, Marek Zulawski, Janina Baranowska, Raya Herzig, Ewa Gargulinska, Wojciech Antoni Sobczynski, Andrzej Borkowski, Stanislaw Blatton, Maciej Jedrzejewski, Malgorzata Lapsa Malawska, Joanna Ciechanowska, Adriana Swierszczek, Maciej Hoffman, Natalia Zagorska Thomas, Danuta Solowiej.
