  • Edward Krasiński

    Tate Liverpool
    Albert Dock
    October 21 - March 5

    Curated by Kasia Redzisz and Stephanie Straine

    Since his remarkable Warsaw studio was reopened as a permanent exhibition soon after his death in 2004, Edward Krasiński has become an increasingly visible avatar of Polish Conceptual art. How does art challenge its own commodification even under state socialism? Tate Liverpool’s forthcoming retrospective—the first ever in the UK—will provide a range of answers from the artist’s entire production, beginning with the rarely seen suspended sculptures of 1964–65. Delicate visual puns, these works accentuate the latent surrealism that winds its way—like the artist’s signature blue stripe—through his room-size installations, several of which will also be on view. A catalogue with essays by the curators as well as historian and curator Jean-François Chevrier and critic Karol Sienkiewicz accompanies the exhibition. Travels to the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, June–Oct. 2017.
