The poster is one of the best "export goods" of Polish art. The works of Henryk Tomaszewski, Roman Cieślewicz, Waldemar Świerzy, and Jan Lenica are known internationally. The "Poster Hangs" exhibition can be seen until the end of February 2023 at the Gallery in the Courtyard (Galeria na Dziedzińcu) in Poznań's Stary Browar. It comprises nearly 200 works by poster artists - from the 1950s/1960s "classics" to projects of the young generation. FAKRO, a roof windows manufacturer, is a partner in the project. The patronage is carried out as a part of the "Window open to Art" campaign.
Politics, film, theater, music, and travel - the exhibition at the Gallery in the Courtyard shows a range of themes labeled as Polish school of posters. The display includes graphics by Tomaszewski, Świerzy, Cieślewicz, Wojciech Fangor, Wiktor Górka, Anna Huskowska, Wojciech Zamecznik, Jan Młodożeniec, Tadeusz Trepkowski. Polish posters are still doing well, claim the exhibition organizers. The young generation gets the most of the outstanding achievements of artists creating at the time of the People's Republic of Poland. They implement agile, intelligent metaphors, wit, and sometimes bitter observations about reality in original, diverse visual forms. The exhibition on such an impressive scale was possible, among others, thanks to the partnership with FAKRO.
