Dzika grafika. Pół wieku ulicznej dywersji wizualnej w Polsce 1967–2017
Exhibition Wild Graphics. Half a Century of Visual Diversion in Poland 1967-2017 was the first such wide in terms of subject and chronology presentation of art appearing on the streets of Polish cities from the 1960s to the second decade of the twentieth century.
The exhibition, whose musical setting was created by Robert Brylewski (musician of Kryzys, Brygada Kryzys, Army, Max and Waiter, Falarek Band, Witch's World, 52um and many other experimental projects) was an extremely diverse review in terms of formal and range of cases. There were records of happenings, performances and other artistic activities in the public space, carried out in the sixties and seventies by the entire galaxy of Polish neo-avant-garde artists, photos of graffiti, inscriptions on the walls, stickers, posters and installations, as well as original graffiti templates, stickers leaflets and other materials preserved to this day. The topics discussed in the presented works were even more varied, from political issues and current social affairs, through aesthetic and existential issues, to quarrels between fans of various football clubs or the internal rivalry of street writers.
Curators - Tomasz Sikorski, Marcin Rutkiewicz, and Michał Warda - presented in the form of photos, slideshows, films and showcases with original objects, a total of 1,500 examples of unofficial, self-controlled, uncontrolled creative activity on the streets of Polish cities, regardless of the artistic level or political message. Under these circumstances, Wild Graphics as an exhibition and the publication accompanying it is an excellent summary of spontaneous expression and social dialogue on the streets of Polish cities of the last half-century. Tomasz Sikorski interprets this broad approach in his text, proposing the concept of "art on streets" as more containing and less appraisal than street art or graffiti.
