Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz and Topografie Association invite you to the first artistic city game. The event accompanies the exhibition “Afterimages of Life. Władysław Strzemiński and Rights for Art”. (30th November 2010-28th February 2011) at ms2.
Władysław Strzemiński is an iconic figure, one of the most radical artists connected with the inter-war avant-garde movement in Poland. It is thanks to his efforts that the International Collection of Modern Art of the “a.r” group was created and marked the beginnings of Museum Sztuki in Lodz in 1931.
Brothers in arms, join the GUa.r.RILLA!
Contrary to the common saying art will not defend itself. It needs help! Let us not allow the vile realism to spread, marginalizing the meaning of avant-garde art. According to the demands of our spiritual leader, Władysław Strzemiński, we are all fighters for the purity of art. The fight continues!
*That is why you, painters, poets, writers ... have stopped being merely artists and have become, like it or not, soldiers within the sector – yes in the political sector – of a common front.*
Join the GUa.r.RILLA. defend the works of the master and strike a deadly blow to the destructive power of social realism.
*The winners will visit the immense storage rooms of the Muzeum Sztuki.*
