poster for "Polish Posters 1945-89" Exhibition

This event has ended.

In the Cold War era the vitality of the Polish Poster School attracted international attention and admiration. Although state controlled, the posters—which are characterized by sophisticated imagery and surreal tendencies—often carried powerful, oblique commentaries on the designers' political surroundings. This exhibition presents a selection of posters from MoMA's collection that typify the striking look and bold spirit of Polish poster design from the 1940s through the 1980s.
