Opening: Wednesday, May 10, 7–9 pm
Green Point Projects, a new cultural initiative in Brooklyn located in a repurposed warehouse in an industrial part of Greenpoint, are pleased to announce Stanisław Fijałkowski: A Young Man Plans a Voyage, an exhibition curated by Marek Bartelik.
The inaugural exhibition examines the work of ninety-five year old Polish artist Stanislaw Fijalkowski, one of the pioneers of post-war lyrical abstraction derived from constructivism and surrealism.
As curator of the exhibition Marek Bartelik says: “I perceive Fijałkowski as one of the most ‘discrete’ and quiet Polish artists today. I know very few artists who have managed to retain such great calmness in art — and to express much with so little: a few lines and a few colors, an allusion to a theme or a motif, a trace, a void. “Minimalism,” yes, but not devoid of emotions, sometimes explicit, sometimes even whimsical, always unexpected.”
Stanislaw Fijalkowski was born in 1922 and currently lives and works in Łódź, Poland. Between 1947-51, Fijałkowski studied painting and graphic arts with the renowned Constructivist Władysław Strzemiński, among others, at the State Art College in Łódź. His works are included in the collections of MoMA, New York; Tate Gallery, London; Trietriakov Gallery, Moscow, and the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź among others as well as in numerous private collections in Poland and abroad.
