The Wrocław School of Printmaking is a wide-ranging exhibition. Featuring print-based works by faculty members of the Printmaking Department at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Poland, the exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of the variety of printmaking techniques and sources of inspiration employed by the artists of the Wrocław School.

Poles, in particular, have excelled at printmaking at least since the 1970s when they teamed up with theaters to present edgy, graphic and often absurd or Surrealist imagery that recorded the currents of change sweeping Eastern Europe and undercutting authority with ironic narrative images that were bold, dramatic and intensely formal at the same time.

Exhibition Date: April 2012 - June 2012
