Małgorzata Mirga-Tas

Art Show: 15/09/2023 • All Day • London

Event Details

Mirga-Tas’s work addresses anti-Romani stereotypes and engages in building an affirmative iconography of Romani communities. She often depicts everyday life: relationships, alliances and shared activities. The artist’s vibrant textile collages are created from materials and fabrics collected from family and friends, which imbues them with a life of their own and a corresponding immediacy. The series of portraits in this exhibition is entitled Siukar Manusia (which can be translated from Romani as great, or wonderful people). The images are of first-generation Romani inhabitants of the Nowa Huta district in eastern Kraków and have evolved from two earlier projects.  

Presented by Frith Street Gallery, this show runs until 11 November 2023.
