The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw presents the first solo exhibition of works by Daniel Rycharski, an artist working at the intersection of diverse social realms between rural Poland, queer culture and communities of faith.
"Daniel Rycharski: Fears" is an overview of the work of an artist who has developed an independent form of collaboration with the local community in his hometown of Kurówko. He has come up with a singular proposal for artistic activity by sparking discussion on issues of identity and the limits of membership within a religious community. Through his works, he manages to convey seemingly contradictory experiences: as an artist and believer, a gay man working within a conservative society to create a new means of emancipation from outdated forms of religion. This cross-section of Rycharski’s works is part of the museum’s programming initiative to pursue a new lexicon for describing the world around us and draw attention to some of the most interesting and radical artistic attitudes of our time.
