Updated: 5 January 2017
The Polish Institute in New Delhi, in collaboration with the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Mumbai and Culture, presents the exhibition EYE ON POLAND: New Graphic Design from Poland to the Mumbai audience.

The exhibition showcases contemporary Polish graphic design. Presenting some of the most fascinating projects of the past few years in contemporary Polish graphic design, the works exhibited include mainly posters, books, exhibition catalogues, CD and vinyl record covers that have been transformed by outstanding designers from utilitarian objects into artistic works.

The exhibition will remain open at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum until July 31, 2016. The museum will be open from 10 am to 5:30 pm on all days except Wednesdays and certain public holidays. More details can be found here.

Here is a look at the artwork of this beautiful exhibition.

The exhibition aims at bringing the richness of the graphic design scene in Poland to Mumbai audiences. The exhibition received contributions from more than 30 designers, artists and design studios. Most of the works displayed were created in the last four years and are commissions.

The curators of the exhibition – Magdalena Frankowska and Artur Frankowski – expressed their views on the graphic design scene in Poland, which according to them is an intriguing one as contemporary Polish graphic design is ‘colorful, swift, witty and smart.’ The scene got an impetus after Poland joined the European Union and new cultural institutions came into being. All the artists whose works are being displayed at the exhibition are currently active in the field of design.

Over the past 15 years, the field of poster and book design is witnessing a new emerging phenomenon; in addition to the professional creators of posters and books, now, illustrators, visual artists and photographers are stepping into the field, thereby, diminishing the thin line between poster designers and other graphic designers. This has allowed novel techniques like vector graphics, photography, collage, painting and freehand drawing to be displayed together in one design.
