| A representative overview of Poland’s most captivating contemporary artists
The growing attention being paid to today’s Polish artists worldwide is not lastly due to the fact that since the nineties, alongside its political transformation, the nation has been undergoing a cultural one as well. The contemporary art scene reflects the excitement and tension that can arise in a country that is oscillating between tradition and the dawn of a new era, thus opening up fascinating and fresh perspectives. Works by contemporary Polish artists are increasingly gaining entry into international museums and collections. As a response to this burgeoning interest, thirty-eight of Poland’s most intriguing artists who are actively influencing the Polish art scene were selected for the publication POLISH! Each artist is introduced in an essay by a leading curator or art critic, along with numerous illustrations of his or her latest, most important works and a succinct biography. Artists featured (selection):Pawel Althamer, Cezary Bodzianowski, Katarzyna Kozyra, Robert Kusmirowski, Dominik Lejman, Wilhelm Sasnal, Monika Sosnowska, Piotr Uklanski, and others
