RETRANSMISSION_
group show at 
Mirus Gallery 

Denver / USA

A joint exhibition featuring a survey of  the finest contemporary abstract artists from Poland

RETRANSMISSION__ is a group exhibition that features a survey of post-graffiti abstract artists from Poland. This collective of artists have lived and worked amongst each other, individually and sometimes through collaboration for many years, establishing a contemporary style unique to Poland. Mirus Gallery celebrates their style and its international influence on contemporary abstraction.

This group consists of painters, sketchers, muralists, graphic designers, sculptors, and typographers. Thanks to this, RETRANSMISSION__ is not a simple show or an exhibition reduced to a presentation of works of art whose common denominatortends to be the street. It is an exhibition which constitutes a story about individual styles, the processes of their formation and sometimes even of reducing complex, strongly contextualised forms to geometrical, typographical or compositional figures.

The exhibition as a whole, can also be seen as a sui generis generational manifesto of artists born in the 1980s; artists brought up in a country already free from socialism, shaped by the same cultural codes that were successfully exploited in the United States or Western Europe.

Therefore, what may be even more interesting to the viewer is perceiving RETRANSMISSION__ as a reinterpretation of the world common to all of us, but presented from the distant perspective of Poland.
