Imagine one art piece created by various artists, from well-known painters to amateurs. Try to guess who the author of each fragment is. See how the whole piece is changing due to different fragments being swapped around.
Come along to the first exhibition of the Multipars Pictura project – Poliptyk Krakowski!
The first installment of the projects exhibition will take place on October 28, 2021 at 2okna Gallery in the heart of Kazimierz district of Kraków!
The goal of the Multipars Pictura project was to engage people of different backgrounds and ages in an active participation of creating a large, multi-part painting. From May until October 2021 everyone interested in taking part in the project, was given a small, primed wood panel with a graphic element painted on it. Their task was to paint a picture of any style and theme but with keeping that graphic element visible.
This idea reached a big number of people from Kraków, Poland and also from abroad. Not only individuals have joined the project but also schools, charities, social care homes and cultural centres. As a result paintings of all kinds were created presenting a variety of different ideas, styles and experiences, but all being connected by one vision and a simple design of a rectangle.
An additional highlight of the project is the hidden identity of the artists. Participants have been asked not to sign their work on the front, but on the back. Thanks to this, the viewers of Polyptych will have to guess the artist, not knowing if e.g an artwork was made by famous artists or an amateur painter.
Starting from 2okna Gallery, the project will be presented in various places in Krakow (art galleries, schools, cultural centres, shops, etc.). Also each exposition will be changing regularly. So each piece will be getting a different context all the time.
The opening of the first exhibition will take place on October 28 at 19:00 in 2okna Gallery in Kraków.
The coordinator of the project is Krakow-based painter and culture animator Beata Pałach Milligan, who implements this project as part of Kraków Art Scholarship “Stypendium Twórcze Miasta Krakowa”.
