The exhibition was organized as part of the 100-year-anniversary celebration of the Awangarda. The starting point for the exhibition was the art by one of the most important representatives of the Polish avant-garde Natalia LL. It is also a reference to the traditional convention of artistic self-portrait. As a result, the exhibition portrays the identity of contemporary Polish artists of different generations. It is a cross-section of the strategies of representative artists of the last few decades, their attitude towards tradition, the power of the avant-garde to redefine reality through art, the ability to rebel against economic violence and the liberating sense of humor.
