Text from the Polish Institute in Bucharest:

Sixty years ago, the economy of forms, innovative lettering, fantasy, irony and the amazing skill of synthetically conceptualized reality were all characteristics which have made the Polish poster famous all around the world. For years, the “Polish Poster School” has been a world benchmark of artistic design. The most interesting examples of this art that are dedicated to theatre, film and opera are to be seen in the exhibition organized by the Polish Institute in Bucharest in collaboration with the National Brukenthal Museum and the Sibiu International Theatre Festival SibFest. The exhibition will be on display from the 7th to 30th of June 2017, at the Contemporary Art Museum in Sibiu (Tribunei Street, No. 6).
Especially planed for the theatre festival (with the support of the largest Polish private collection of posters, counting more than 20 thousand works, belonging to Krzysztof Dydo, a good connoisseur of poster art and owner of a gallery in Cracow), the exhibition comprises eighty works, created by about 50 artists. Among them, forerunners of the „Polish poster school” such as Henryk Tomaszewski, Jan Lenica, Waldemar Świerzy, Jan Młodożeniec or Franciszek Starowieyski are to be seen. There will also be on display posters by illustrators from the young generation, worthily continuing the art of their predecessors, such as Lech Majewski, Andrzej Pągowski, Tomasz Bogusławski or Sebastian Kubica. The exhibition is a good opportunity for the viewers to get acquainted with the diversity of themes and styles in the Polish poster at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, which, in spite of the domination of electronic media, still remains a faithful servant of cultural events.
