Zdzislaw Beksinski: A Tale Told by Shadows – Opening Reception

With great pleasure, the Polish Museum of America (PMA) presents an exhibition of paintings, drawings, avant-garde photography and documentary films by one of the leading figures in Polish contemporary art. Zdzislaw Beksinski (1929–2005) is known for his nonconformity and the freedom in which he shaped and distorted reality in his painting.
