The Milan Grygar exhibition at the Foksal Gallery is the first presentation of this artist's work to be held in Poland for many years. His previous show took place in 1974 at the Museum of Art in Łódź, when, at Ryszard Stanisławski's invitation, the spaces of the Łódź museum played host to both an exhibition of Grygar's works and a performance art work. This is by no means a chance reference to the 1974 exhibition. The show at the Foksal will focus primarily on a closer look at that period of the artist's work, namely, the late 1960s and early 1970s, a period deemed to be one of the most significant and most pioneering in Milan Grygar's artistic quest. The exhibition will be showing multimedia documentation of Grygar's most important actions from 1969, 1973 and 1982 and this will be supplemented by photographs of the events, as well as his Acoustic Drawings and Drawings/Ground-Plan Scores from that period.
