The economy of forms, innovative lettering, fantasy, irony and the amazing skill of synthetically conceptualize reality are all characteristics which have made the Polish poster famous all around the world sixty years ago. For years, the ’Polish Poster School’ has been a world benchmark of artistic design. The most interesting examples of this art dedicated to theatre, film and opera are to be seen in the exhibition prepared 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 10th to 30th of June 2017, in the Contemporary Art Museum in Sibiu (Str. Tribunei nr. 6).

The exhibition, especially conceived for the theatre festival, with the support of the largest Polish private poster collection, counting more than 20 thousand works, belonging to Krzysztof Dydo, a good connoisseur of poster art and owner of a gallery in Cracow, is composed of eighty works, created by around 50 artists. There will be among them forerunners of the ‘Polish poster school’, such as Henryk Tomaszewski, Jan Lenica, Waldemar Swierzy, Jan Mlodozeniec or Franciszek Starowieyski. There will also be on display posters by illustrators from the young generation, worthily continuing the art of their predecessors, such as, among others Lech Majewski, Andrzej Pagowski, Tomasz Boguslawski or Sebastian Kubica. The exhibition will allow 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.
