An exhibition of Polish ethnic designs is now underway at the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) in Beijing.
Prepared by the State Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw, Poland, the exhibition, From Sources to Inspiration: Ethnic Motifs in Polish Design, features over 200 pieces of folk artwork to help introduce the rich culture of Polish folk art to China.
This exhibition consists of two sections. The first presents traditional folk costumes from major areas of Poland dating from the 19th century to today and Polish musical instruments. It also displays dancing models, which were made especially for the International Exhibition of Folk Dances, a part of the Art and Technology exhibition that took place in Paris in 1937. The second section features contemporary inspirations of Polish folk culture, ranging from utensils to gadgets.
