“(Un)Applied Arts” | online activities

Can the exhibition be shown online? We think so! This way you can see more details, run your imagination and read interesting news about artists – and all this without leaving home! For the next few weeks, every few days, we are going to provide new information about the exhibition and exercises that would help you to understand presented works of art.

We are going to present to everyone, the small and the big ones, “(Un)Applied Arts” exhibition!

Everyday objects are easy to recognise, name and to specify what they are used for and how to use them. We can relax on a soft sofa, mug is used to brew hot drinks in, and a warm radiator warms us in winter evenings. Sometimes familiar shape of a given object may make us misjudge its function. Or vice versa – it seems to us that a peculiar object is useless, and turns out to be something very useful in everyday life.

“(Un)Applied Arts”, an educational exhibition, presents a collection of works that refer to objects with a purely decorative function, such as a porcelain figurine, and to these playing a specific role, such as a radiator, floor or door. Works of art turn out to be full of various meanings that we have not expected at all! Once again, art amazes and deceives us a bit, thus, proving that appearance is not everything!

The exhibition presents works created by such artists as: Mariusz Drzewiński, Barbara Gryka, Piotr Korol, Tomasz Malec, Tomasz Matuszak, Sławomir Toman, and Jan Ziemski. Presented works come from the collections of Galeria Labirynt and the Lublin Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts.
