Anthological exhibition on the sculptor Grzegorz Gwiazda at MEAM
The exhibition coincides with the centenary of Auguste Rodin's death.
Born in Lidzbark Warmiski, Poland, in 1984, Grzegorz Gwiazda is considered, despite his youth, to be one of the best contemporary sculptors, and there are even those who believe that he is on a par with figures like Auguste Rodin, hence the original title that Barcelona’s European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) gave to this anthological exhibition of his work: Grzegorz Gwiazda The Rodin of the 21st century. The exhibition actually coincides with the centenary of the death of the legendary French sculptor, who passed away in November 1917. The exhibition will open on the last day of the month and will run until 28 January 2018.
This will, in fact, be the first anthological exhibition devoted to the work of Gwiazda. So far he has taken part in collective and solo exhibitions, especially in his native Poland. A number of his sculptures are part of the MEAM collection, where he has also taught courses. His work stands out for his mastery of classical techniques and for the expressive force of the figures he carves, especially his male nudes.
