Joanna Wierusz-Kowalska “To the Light”


The exhibition presents a selection of artworks by Joanna Wierusz-Kowalska from different periods of her life, especially the last period, when she created monumental, abstract paintings. Their composition, dominated by circular forms with white-yellow centers reminds us of a tunnel or a whirlwind leading to the light – hence the title of the exhibition.

“City of Women”

The exhibition “City of Women” presents the works of four Polish artists – Arika MADEYSKA, Janina MUNIAK, Zofia SZALOWSKA, Joanna WIERUSZ-KOWALSKA – who moved to Paris in the 1960s and made the City of Light their place on earth. Personal history of each of those artists is certainly unique, but they are an indivisible part of the context in which they were written: that of Europe, split in two by the Iron Curtain and of an emigration: political, economical and even artistic.
