America Is Not Ready For This (2011-ongoing)
The inspiration and starting point for the project is the scholarship stay in summer 1977 in New York of the Polish artist Natalia LL, a representative of the then neo-avant-garde. Her visit, during which, among others, she had the opportunity to participate in the Gay Pride Parade, as well as her conversations with local prominent gallerists, curators, and artists, provoke a series of questions on issues such as: gender, feminist art, conceptual art, and queer identity. Natalia LL’s American adventure, as well as visits of other Polish artists to the USA during this period, allows a fresh look at East-West relations and their impact on the world of art in the context of the Iron Curtain. “America Is Not Ready For This” project involves research and the creation of a documentary based on interviews with a number of people.
Project in cooperation with Contemporary Wroclaw Museum and Residency Unlimited with support from Polish Institute in New York
