POLKI Hidden Power exhibition – powered by the Cultural Brigdes program

“Polki – Hidden Power” are coming back! This year exhibition is going to be part of @austindesignweek and will be shown from Nov 4-8. 

The exhibition POLKI Hidden Power, compromising the works of Polish women: illustrators and ceramic artists, that approach the subject of womanhood in their arts, will be presented between November 4th and 8th at Austin Design Week. The aim of the exhibition is to take a closer look at Polish women – Polki, and seek out the traces of the feminine, hidden power in their work and art.

The exhibition presents both the work of Polish illustrators as well as designers, particularly ceramists, that either allude to the subject of womanhood or to the art and objects that embody its strength as great pieces of feminine art. It shows the work of both recognized and emerging Polish female artists: Basia Grzybowska Flores, Maria Jeglińska, Izabela Kaczmarek – Szurek, Malwina Konopacka, Kaja Kusztra, Aleksandra Morawiak, Magdalena Pankiewicz, Sabina Samulska, and Ewelina Skowrońska.

“POLKI Hidden Power” is curated by Monika Brauntsch, in collaboration with the artist Ewelina Skowrońska and Carol Flueckiger, Associate Professor, School of Art, Texas Tech University.

In 2018 the exhibition was shown at San Francisco Design Week and at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
The project is financed by the funds of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, within the scope of the Multiannual Program INDEPENDENT 2017-2022, as part of the “Cultural bridges” subsidy program of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
