POLKI Hidden Power Exhibition
November 4, 2019 @ 8:30 am - November 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
Join Austin Design Week for the exhibition “POLKI Hidden Power”, a show takes a closer look at Polish women – Polki, and seeks out the traces of their feminine, hidden power in their work and art. For centuries women were in a subordinate position in terms of their rights, voice, independence, their social and familial status. They had limited choices, save for to muster up the strength to carry on in order to fulfill the expectations of society. The exhibition presents both the work of Polish illustrators as well as designers, particularly ceramists, that either allude to the subject of womanhood or to the art and objects that embody its strength as great pieces of feminine art.
