  Exhibitions - POLISH ART 1955-1985
Polish art of the post World War II decade–marked by postwar trauma, stagnation, isolation, and a desperate attempt to define its new language–from 1949 to 1954 was trapped by the rigorous premises of the officially imposed socialist realism, which vanished almost immediately after Stalin's death.
In 1955, an exhibition of young artists called Against War, Against Fascism, held at the Warsaw's Arsenal building, became a symbol of the nation's artistic breakthrough from the Stalinist era.
Most of the truly innovative forms of expression in Polish art between 1955 and 1985 were born on the borderline of different branches of art, or art and other human activities.

 ICv2 Talk Back - Geppi Statement in Response to 2000 Harvey Suit
Geppi's Comic World agreed, at its expense, to "pack, sort and remove the artwork by June 13, 1984." Harvey, as it was explained to me, could no longer afford the rent on the warehouse space and, in fact, the landlord had terminated their lease for non-payment.
So I agreed that if the art was not removed by that date, I would pay fifty dollars ($50.00) a day for each day after June 13, 1984 that the art remained in Harvey's warehouse.
Artworks were laying on the floor, word balloons separated from the art was scattered on the floor, artwork from different comics and different years was stuffed into the same envelopes, it was totally unsorted and unorganized.
