Henryk Stażewski's exhibition at the Zacheta National Gallery in Warsaw, 1965 (1-16/16)

The exhibition at Zachęta showcased Stażewski’s most recent works of art from 1964 to 1965, as well as two 3x5 meter reliefs made from sheet metal that had been painted white with convex, cylindrical, black and white forms. These pieces created an integrated space whose architectural quality was even more emphasized by additional lighting. Displaying painting and sculpture in relation to architecture had its roots in Constructivist tradition, and in the 1960s it again became present in for example, environment events that were an effort to go beyond the traditional artistic object, especially painting.
