The subject of the exhibition is the work of three female artists, pioneers of Polish women’s art: Ewa Partum, Natalia Lach-Lachowicz and Maria Pinińska-Bereś, who died in 1999. From the 1970s onwards, they have been linked by a similar quest in which a clear feminist intuition or an identification with feminism is perceptible. Despite this, however, this will be the first time when their works are set alongside one another in such a configuration.Zachęta National Gallery of ArtZachęta
