A unique encoun­ter between Zofia Rydet and Władysław Hasior is presen­ted at Galeria BWA in Tarnów (from 17 May). Under the theme Pain­ted Houses, photographs by the two artists are exhibited as an original record of the visual and material cul­ture of the Polish coun­tryside in the twilight of the 20th cen­tury. Along­side excerpts from Władysław Hasior’s Photo Notebook visitors can view Zofia Rydet’s excep­tional photo port­folio Zalipie, com­mis­sioned in 1982 by Ars Polona, which han­dled the inter­national distribution of Polish books and con­tem­porary art. A por­trait of Władysław Hasior and his studio can also be found in the series Sociological Record made by Rydet in Zakopane in 1983.
