The publication is a compilation of Polish and international press articles on Zbigniew Libera’s work. We will find out what were the main topics of the art-world discourses, what stirred the greatest controversy, and who was the critics’ darling.
Zbigniew Libera realized a moving, monumental installation at the Arte in Memoria biennale, held for over a decade in the ruins of Ostia Antica in Rome. The installation—a section of railroad tracks dozens of yards long (pictured above)—bears the title Where Do They Go? and is located near the remains of the oldest synagogue in Europe.
An exhibition that brings together the works of four artists – Zbigniew Libera and Przemek Matecki, represented by Raster Gallery, Warsaw, and Yaron Attar and Hadas Satt, represented by RawArt Gallery, Tel Aviv; organized as part of 2017’s Fresh Paint art fair in Tel Aviv.
ARTISTS IN ACTION
“The battle of good vs. evil” is the title of a performative action by Zbigniew Libera that was part of a 24-hour-long art project “Long cycle” in the national theatre Stary Teatr in Kraków. Two pairs of wrestlers fought non stop over night on June 5 in the theatre foyer.
Premiere screenings of two loudly-commented movies from 2015 will take place at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery in Hong Kong: “Walser”, a cinematic debut by Zbigniew Libera who wrote and directed it, and “Performer”, a feature film inspired by Oskar Dawicki, starring… Oskar Dawicki playing Oskar Dawicki (dir. by Łukasz Ronduda and Maciej Sobieszczański).
