David Zwirner director James Green on the UK’s first exhibition of Andrzej Wróblewski

March 23, 2018

To accompany the exhibition of his work at David Zwirner London, director James Green writes for us about Andrzej Wróblewski.

We, at David Zwirner, are delighted to be presenting the first solo exhibition of Andrzej Wróblewski's (1927–1957) work in the UK. We're showing a group of key paintings and a wide-ranging selection of works on paper detailing recurring subjects from throughout the artist’s oeuvre, which often drew on Poland’s sociopolitical atmosphere in the wake of the Second World War.

David Zwirner Director James Green

Wróblewski’s practice can be characterised as a unique language of figuration, with some abstract or surreal tendencies, relying on what has been termed the “eye of the soul”; not drawn or painted from life, but experienced even if not seen. He was responsible for a form of “Traumatic Realism”, in stark contrast to the Soviet Realist doctrine that had been declared in Poland in 1949 which was rejected soon after by Wróblewski. He was determined that history, and the trauma carried with it, should not be left in the past.

There is mythic construction of Wróblewski as a self-destructive, melancholic figure who was encroached upon by tragedy from all sides, but this is too simplistic. He had experienced great trauma, but also moments of hopefulness and personal contentment during his short life. The apex of these moments coincided with the political change due the “Thaw” in 1956, following the death of Stalin in 1953, and the birth of Wróblewski's two children.

Wróblewski was “semi-active” as an artist, arguably as a result of the unsettled conditions and difficulties that faced post-war Poland and Europe, and his work was neither ignored nor celebrated. It is not a historic record or archive, but something restorative following the traumatic events in Poland during this period of the 20th century. We hope the exhibition will encourage more dialogue around Wróblewski and reaffirm his importance and contribution to contemporary European figurative painting; not only in relation to artists from Poland and the former Soviet Union, such as Wilhelm Sasnal, but also with regard to figures such as Luc Tuymans and Marlene Dumas.

Le Foyer de l’Art Brut: Jean Dubuffet and his search for artistic truth

 
As part of the first Reading Room series of events at Frieze Masters 2016, GalleriesNow.net co-founder Tristram Fetherstonhaugh and James Brett of The Museum of Everything talk about Jean Dubuffet’s radical Parisian salon Le Foyer de l’Art Brut, and the ways it inspired the artist on his lifetime journey of discovery.

The original Foyer attracted the attention of many of the best known artists and writers of that generation, including people like Joan Miró, Jean Cocteau, Tristan Tzara and André Breton - and the Gallery of Everything’s historical interpretation of the exhibition is part of Sir Norman Rosenthal’s Collections at Frieze Masters 2016.

Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, at the breakfast launch

Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 16.02.15The Royal Academy of Arts today launched the Mayfair and St. James’s Map. The complimentary map highlights the area of Mayfair and St. James’s, one of the oldest and most important arts quarters in the world. From the south of St. James’s between Pall Mall and Piccadilly to the north of New Bond Street, the area is home to internationally renowned auction houses and leading art galleries as well as the Royal Academy of Arts.

The map has been produced in collaboration with GalleriesNow.net and features 145 art locations in total, including 139 commercial galleries, 4 auction houses, as well as the Royal Academy and The Photographers’ Gallery. Visitors to the area will be able to pick up a map from each of the listed venues and explore the vibrant breadth of art on display, from works by the Old Masters to today’s contemporary artists. The map will also be available to download from the RA website and GalleriesNow.net.

Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, said: “In the lead up to the Royal Academy’s 250th anniversary and the opening of the Elizabeth Line at Bond Street Station in 2018, we are delighted to be working with the galleries and auction houses in the area, to present the broad range of visual arts Mayfair and St James’s has to offer.”

Notes to Editors:

About the Royal Academy of Arts

The Royal Academy of Arts was founded by King George III of England in 1768. It has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists. Its public programmes promote the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.

The RA is undergoing a transformative redevelopment which will be completed in time for its 250th anniversary in 2018. Led by the internationally-acclaimed architect Sir David Chipperfield RA and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the plans will link Burlington House on Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens for the first time, uniting and revitalising the two-acre site. The redevelopment will also reveal the elements that make the RA unique, sharing with the public the historic treasures in its Collection, the work of its Academicians and the RA Schools, alongside its world-class exhibitions programme.
