THE TATRA CONFERENCE    
 


THE TATRA CONFERENCE
4 – 6 December 2014
Zakopane
 

The Tatra Conference is an international meeting of artists, curators, art historians, writers and anthropologists held in the mountain resort of Zakopane. Their works, discussions and presentations will be devoted to the avant-garde tradition of the locality, the artists once associated with the town, as well as its mythology and surrounding nature. Drawing on the history of the Zakopane’s artistic colony – a group of artists and writers for whom Zakopane of the late 19th century was the centre of intellectual debate and a source of inspiration, the Conference is conceived as an attempt at exploring and investigating the creative potential of the place.

ARTISTS AND ART IN ZAKOPANE    
 

The Gallery of 20th Century Art at Oksza villa,
the newest branch of the Tatra Museum
Zakopane, ul. Zamoyskiego 25
 
The exhibition presents the output of the artistic community and artists who were temporarily connected with Zakopane at a time when the village was Poland’s leading centre of artistic excellence. All of them drew inspiration from the Tatra mountains and the Tatra Highlander culture. The display is presented in the interiors of Oksza villa, designed by Stanisław Witkiewicz in 1894 in the Zakopane Style, which was restored by the Tatra Museum in 2010.
 
KAZIMIERZ SICHULSKI’S CARICATURES AT KOLIBA VILLA    
 

This collection of caricatures by Kazimierz Sichulski, drawn between 1914 and 1917, is now on display on the first floor of the Museum of the Zakopane Style at Koliba villa. It has replaced the longstanding display of portraits of The Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz Portrait Painting Firm which can now be seen at the Gallery of 20th Century Art at Oksza villa.
