Warsaw: Duos 2020
December 3, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Recognition and Youth, or…
We discover the world by making comparisons. By juxtaposing isolated fragments, we unveil the essence of things. Guided by this belief, DUOS extend a cordial invitation to witness a visual encounter between artistic maturity and youth, to compare the oeuvre of world-recognised artists with the work of the young generation, whose career is only just beginning.
The first DUOS event will be held on December 3 at 7 PM.
The welcoming setting of the Faculty of Management of Visual Culture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie 37/39) will host a meeting between Hanna Zawa-Cywińska and Mateusz Choróbski.
The evening inaugurates a series of events devoted to a selection of pieces by artists representing very different generations, ideas and formal approaches.
The DUOS project was devised by Dorota Roesler and Dr Olaf Kwapis as a series of unobvious encounters, a juxtaposition of the essences of artistic practices, which serves to mutually shed light on each of the selected artists’ work through the prism of carefully chosen examples. Another goal is to inspire further observations and encourage a continuation of seemingly impossible dialogues that extends well beyond this one night. The project initiators and organisers wish to establish a platform for creative personalities to mutually counterpoint each other, which – as we hope – will develop into an overture to artistic dialogues and contacts between them.
Importantly, the initiative is meant to surround its protagonists with individuals passionate about art, collectors, but also representatives of the corporate world and people without prior links to the art market. The opening nights of the two subsequent iterations of DUOS will offer an opportunity to present artists’ work, hold a discussion and interpret meanings that emerge on each occasion from a juxtaposition of two carefully selected pieces.
The evenings devoted to the subsequent artist pairings will be held four times a year at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, as well as in other locations, also outside Warsaw, during the summer holiday month.
Number of guests is limited. For details regarding registration for the event and invitations, please contact Dorota Roesler, email address: [email protected]
