It is an international collective exhibition on the theme “Art and Life” as part of the “Art and Science” project in collaboration with the Institute of Biology and Biotechnology and the Institute of Fine Arts of the University of Rzeszów in Poland.
We will exhibit 44 artists from different countries and regions: France (Eure, Vexin), Poland, China, Hungary, Indonesia, Slovakia, Spain, USA, Japan, Iran, Ecuador, Korea, Sweden, Mexico.
“Art and Life” is an exhibition where artists try to answer important questions: Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going ? The title of this work painted by Paul Gauguin was the main ideological inspiration of the invited artists.
The exhibition designers assumed that people associated with art or science were interested in researching the surrounding world and its visual form … However, it is difficult to imagine these activities in these fields, without the element of creativity which must be accompanied by a strong feeling of ease in the use of freedom, both artistic and intellectual. Curiosity, creativity and intellectual autonomy are also the most important characteristics of the artists and scientists working on the project.
At the Wela Art Gallery, as part of the presentation of the artistic achievements of the “Art and Life” project, there will also be a demonstration of obtaining dyes isolated from microorganisms and a presentation of their application in art. During the exhibition in Gasny, a work using these dyes will also be presented.
Curators of the exhibition: Elisabeth Wierzbicka (Wela Gallery) and Patrycja Longawa, Miroslaw Pawlowski, Marek A. Olszynski (Institute of Fine Arts of the University of Rzeszów)
