Art and Heritage in Central Europe

Exhibition “Travelling Images. Małgorzata Mirga-Tas” at the ICC in Krakow PROLONGED

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

“Travelling Images” is the first solo exhibition of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas – currently the major representative of contemporary Roma art – after the great success at this year’s 59. Biennial of Art in Venice. At the ICC we show a large selection of the artist’s works from years 2017–2022, including the series “Out of Egypt” and the series of large-format tapestries titled “Herstories”. We also present new works addressing, among others, the history of the Roma community in Nowa Huta and the Roma memory.

Małgorzata Mirga-Tas draws on the art of the past, especially Renaissance painting, as well as on everyday life. On the one hand she appropriates significant elements of European heritage and early modern art. On the other, she researches and incorporates photographs from her family archives.

The exhibition is available at the gallery of International Cultural Centre in Kraków from 2.12.2022 to 19.3.2023 (PROLONGED)

The partner of the exhibition is the Scientific Library of the PAAS and the PAS in Kraków.
