Product Description

R.H. Quaytman is one of the most outstanding contemporary artists attempting to revitalize and update the intellectual and emotional potential contained in the painting medium.

The exhibition, prepared especially for the Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz, was a kind of conceptual retrospective, where the artist has re-read earlier Chapters of the constantly developed project, and returned to its origins closely related to Lodz and the works by Katarzyna Kobro and Wladyslaw Strzeminski. Apart from precisely selected works from earlier chapters, the exhibition has presented new paintings in which R.H. Quaytman continues her dialogue with the work of Polish artists and explores other aspects of her personal relationship with the Lodz museum.

In cooperation with Fundação Serralves in Porto, the second edition of the exhibition is currently being prepared and is scheduled to open in October this year. The catalogue accompanying the exhibition is being prepared in bilingual, Polish-English, version, and contains essays written by the artist, a curator of the show, Jaroslaw Suchan, and Marta Dziewanska who is an art critic and curator in Kunstmuseum Bern.
