Kemistry Gallery and Twarda Sztuka Foundation are proud to present Mr T: The Posters of Jerzy Treutler – a celebration of Treutler’s work from the 60s & 70s , and classic Polish poster design

Treutler is recognised internationally for his participation in the School of Polish Posters. From his graduation from the Warsaw Fine Art Academy in 1955 to the 1990s, Treutler designed film, exhibition, sport and national information posters for various central agencies; creating over 150 posters, several book covers and numerous corporate logos and illustrations.

Treutler was able to create powerful imagery, inspired by movies and events without actually detailing them: no head shots and movie stills, no specifically direct connection to the title. His work utilises bold colour, simple imagery and vivid lines to underline the strength of the message, and is distinguished by an abstract style typical of the Polish poster artist. Treutler’s posters are as fresh and engaging today as when they were first produced.

Roman Opałka started counting in 1965, and on August 6, 2011, he stopped counting at his limit of “the finite defined by the nonfinite” of 5,607,249. “Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows.” (via). That is a shit ton of boring work, kind of like blogging.

Aphex Twin and Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s get together in Poland

Well, this is when you know Radiohead and Coldplay/Popular Music don’t belong in the same category. This is what Radiohead’s lead guitarist does in his time-off from Radiohead; makes a remix of Penderecki’s “Polymorphia”, titled “48 Responses to Polymorphia.” This went down in Poland “celebrating avant-garde Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki at the European Culture Congress in Wroclaw. Aphex Twin debuted his remix of ‘Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima’, the composition that earned Penderecki widespread recognition in the early stages of his career. He and Greenwood also premiered their versions of Penderecki’s ‘Polymorphia’.”

For the recent summer solstice, the residents of Poznań, Poland gathered in the town square, at least we can assume they did, and let off a record 8,000 lanterns to the night sky. The record is a Polish record, the world record, we have no idea about. But it is quite beautiful.
