This event has ended.
This year marks 100 years since diplomatic relations were established between the Japanese government and the Republic of Poland. This exhibition will introduce the current state of video expression and the women artists of Poland.
The art and movie/video history of twentieth century Poland was narrated by numerous male artists. However, following the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the sudden influx of international economics to Eastern Europe and Poland’s admittance to the EU in the twenty-first century, women artists began to make their presence felt, particularly in the field of video expression. In addition, there has recently been a trend to reassess the video expression created by pioneering women artists during the previous century that has not received the attention it deserves. Interacting with researchers, curators and associated institutions both inside and outside Poland, this exhibition will present an ambitious interpretation of contemporary Polish art looked at from a new viewpoint.
