Ryszard Waśko, Manifesto "For The Rose, For True Artist and For Ad Reinhardt", 1981
 
"Do not say that you were born at the wrong time" is an exhibition presenting the works by Ryszard Waśko from 70s and 80s as well as the newest works from 2018. The works, reated in different times and using different mediums are united by the theme: a "word", that establishes the form creating in the same time the content . "The word" for Waśko is always a manifesto, a scream, a protest, a conversation and a mutual understanding. 
Exhibition is also the inauguration of the new space of Arton Foundation, Foksal 11, Warsaw.
opening: 28.06.2018 - 7-10 P.M. 
exhibition: 29.06.-15.09. (Tue.- Sat. 12-6 P.M.)
