Portraying the Surreal: three generations in Polish Photography


2010.09.24 Nasza Polonia

On Saturday, September the 25th 2010, we give you not one, but two openings of the Surreal!


GRID2010 Photography Biennale asked Blaton & Rypson, Anthropologists in Art, to represent Polish Photography at the WM Gallery as well as at the Roders Wine Hall on Crucquiusweg 67. Curators Blaton & Rypson have opted to present a unique selection of the Surreal through time. Invited are: the grande dame of Polish photography Zofia Rydet (1911-1997), Grzegorz Rogala (1956) and Andrzej Dragan (1978). Together they represent three generations within Polish photography where the surreal meets the innovative.


Besides the three representatives of Polish photographic surrealism, the artistic group Lodz Kaliska (Lodz Kaliska) cannot be omitted. Aside from the innovative installation by Grzegorz Rogala ("Pedestrians'), Anthropologist in Art and WM Gallery present this unparalleled influential artistic group in the Roders Wine Hall on the Cruquiusweg 67 during the official opening of the country-exhibition.


These exhibitions are something special, try not to miss it, it's just simply amazing!


To sum up:


On Saturday 25th of September at 17:00 to 18:30 at WM Gallery (Elandsgracht 35) Amsterdam; Opening of Zofia Rydet, Grzegorz Rogala and Andrzej Dragan

and at 19:30 at Roders Wine Hall (Cruquiusweg 67) Amsterdam; Opening of Lodz Kaliska and Grzegorz Rogala's installation "Pedestrians"
