This exhibition marks the fulfilment of a long-cherished wish of the Gemeentemuseum’s – the home of Mondrian and De Stijl – to shine a spotlight on the work of Katarzyna Kobro (1898-1951) and Wladyslaw Strzeminski (1893-1952). Kobro made fantastic, completely abstract objects. In his paintings, Strzeminski sought absolute harmony of colour and form. Polish Avant-garde will introduce a Dutch audience to this extraordinary artist couple who managed to bridge the divide between the fully abstract art of De Stijl from the west and Malevich’s Suprematism from the east. The exhibition is being mounted in collaboration with Muzeum Sztuki in Lódz.
