After the show at Raster, a selection of Small Paintings is presented at an exhibition at Gdańska Galeria Miejska under the moving title The Skeletons Must Rise (in Gdańsk through 26 August). The theme of the show is the condition of the contemporary museum. Other artists in the show include Olaf Brzeski.
Another painting specially prepared by Matecki can be seen in the travelling show Speedway in Art at BWA in Tarnów (also through 26 August), accompanied by works by artists including Marcin Maciejowski and Wilhelm Sasnal.
Last but not least, there’s also two individual shows by Przemek Matecki scheduled.
One opens on 16 August at Raw Art Gallery in Tel Aviv, featuring Small Paintings as well as the premiere of works painted together with Paweł Althamer.
The other is at kunst.museum.dieselkraftwerk in Cottbus. It is the first museum presentation of the artist’s works in Germany. It includes over 500 canvases from the series Small Paintings, arranged in a new pattern on the walls of one large room at the museum. The exhibition, prepared in cooperation with BWA in Zielona Góra, runs until 18 November.
