The project aimed to popularise the work of this outstanding artist, who lived from 1882 to 1946 and is internationally recognised as one of the most outstanding sculptors of the first half of the 20th century, a pioneer of many art movements, including Art Deco. His art is located in all the most prominent museums, mainly in the United States. While living in Paris, Elie Nadelman was friends with eminent representatives of the art world, including André Salmon, Amadeo Modigliani, Gertrude and Leo Stein, and in the milieu of the Polish artistic colony, he maintained close relations with Leopold Gottlieb, Mela Muter, Gustaw Gwozdecki, Eugeniusz Zak, Louis Marcoussis and many other artists.

Rebellion and Freedom. Linocuts by Stanisław Kubicki (1889-1942)

4 November 2021 – 14 February 2022

The project included an exhibition presenting the graphic work of this multifaceted artist. Co-founder of the Poznań Expressionist group “Bunt” between 1918 and 1920, together with the publisher of the magazine “Zdrój”, Jerzy Hulewicz. He maintained contacts with Polish and international avant-garde groups. The works selected for the exhibition illustrated Kubicki's artistic development. From the 'Tower of Babel', which is closest to Expressionism, through works inspired by folk woodcuts and possessing increasingly simplified forms, discernible in 'Nude with Clouds' and 'Church Tower in Schömberg', to abstract-cubic works such as 'Dancer' and 'Thought', which are considered the first Polish avant-garde works.
