Zdzislaw Beksinski: A Tale Told by Shadows

@ Polish Museum of America

984 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60642

Opening Friday, June 9th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Tuesday, September 5th

With great pleasure, the Polish Museum of America (PMA) presents an exhibition of paintings, drawings, avant-garde photography and documentary films by one of the leading figures in Polish contemporary art. Zdzislaw Beksinski (1929–2005) is known for his nonconformity and the freedom in which he shaped and distorted reality in his painting. Through the exploration of his subconscious, Beksinski combined in his work surreal and abstract elements with expressionistic color. His work remains a manifestation of art in our time and impresses an emotional effect on its viewer.

Beksinski’s paintings will also be presented in virtual reality allowing visitors to take a journey inside his painting. The exhibition at PMA in Chicago presents a unique opportunity to introduce Zdzislaw Beksinski’s work to the American audience. Art presented at the exhibition is from the collection of the Historical Museum in Sanok, Poland and the National Museum in Szczecin, Poland.

Opening reception, Friday, June 9 – $15 (online) and $20 (at the door); includes free parking
