Frank Stella and Synagogues of Historic Poland
Frank Stella and Synagogues of Historic Poland provided a unique opportunity to meet an artist widely regarded as one of the greatest in twentieth-century American art. The exhibition featured the extraordinary work of Frank Stella and also told the fascinating story of its creation. For the first time Stella’s reliefs from the Polish Village series were set side by side with the prewar photographs and the measured drawings of wooden synagogues that inspired them – a fascinating overlap and interplay of two seemingly distant worlds: that of the Polish wooden synagogue and that of modern American art.
The exhibition Frank Stella and Synagogues of Historic Poland was open from February 19 until June 20, 2016, at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.
Please note that you can take photographs at the exhibition for private use only. Please do not use flash while taking photographs.
