Catalogue Krzysztof Kokoryn. 2001
Posters! Art ready to download, that is, your favourite artists on posters! Galeria ART presents a series of authorial posters. Contrary to popular belief, literature and art are not on the retreat, and interest in books and paintings is not an elitist activity. We combine paintings with poetry, novels, essays on art and architecture. What does Adam Patrzyk have in common with Franz Kafka, or Maja Kiesner with Peter Zumthor? Find out in the poster. Image and word in a nutshell: a reproduction of a painting and a quote from literature.
Catalogs published by the ART Galery are an unprecedented phenomenon in the commercial gallery community – rectangular booklets with hard gray cardboard covers have become our trademark and a source of pride. We have already prepared 38 such catalogs which accompanied the individual exhibitions of artists associated with our gallery. Being in the company of art may be considered to be a purely sensual pleasure. It is also possible to try to “understand” art and in this case, in order to “see” one has to “know”. This is why the ART Gallery catalogs are supplemented with text – critical essays, interviews with artists, sometimes even stories or poetry, and strictly literary texts inspired by art.
