Raku means joy, pleasure. The final effects are often surprising and unpredictable, depending on the type of clay, glaze used and the firing method.

Raku pottery originated in Japan in the 16th century. Wood-burning stoves used to be used for this purpose. Initially, they were handmade vessels used during the tea ceremony. The modern raku firing technique involves quick firing of pre-fired clay objects in small kilns heated by a gas cylinder. Then removing the hot work and reducing it in the flammable material and cooling it in water. This method was introduced in the United States. It has little in common with traditional raku. However, thanks to this technique, beautiful and unique things are created every time. Vessels fired in this way are always black in places where there is no glaze due to fuming. However, where the enamel has been placed, the so-called cracks, i.e. cracks resulting from thermal shock when removing a hot object from the furnace.

During the shows, viewers will have the opportunity to learn how to glaze ceramics, and will also have the pleasure of glazing prepared objects that they can take with them after firing.

18:00 – oprowadzanie kuratorskie po wystawie
18:30 – workshops How to make a drag performance with Ala Uwał

The exhibition presents various faces of drag, refers to the performance of drag by people with very different identities and methods of identification, and also indicates references to drag culture in popular culture. It breaks with the traditional binary thinking about drag, showing a wide spectrum of drag incarnations, attributes, masks, costumes, and artistic works. It is also worth emphasizing the artistic interest in drag, which we have been observing for some time at student exhibitions held at University of the Arts Poznan. Therefore, some of the presented works are works created by people studying at our University.

Opening of the exhibition Fresh Eye | exhibition of people studying at UAP 12th Painting Studio
Venue: UAP, building F, 16 Szewska Str., room 23 (entrance via a staircase behind the courtyard)
From 15:30

Exhibition of students of the 12th Painting Studio run by prof. Ph.D. Janusz Marciniak with his assistant Monika Szczygieł. The exhibition summarizes the last months spent in the studio.

The title of the exhibition refers to the colloquial phrase “to look at something with fresh eyes”. In a long-term creative process, it is extremely difficult to maintain a critical and objective view. A useful practice is to stop working for a while or seek advice from someone who can provide us with their own perspective. The collective exhibition is an opportunity to compare your work with the work of others and restore the sharpness of your judgment. Unusual works by young artists, which are responses to the given slogans and are also related to their own interests, will create an overview of the perspectives that young artists have on the world.

Artists: Filip Andrunyk, Rafał Bobrowski, Alicja Borzyńska, Mateusz Drozdowski, Joanna Dymek, Olaf Frankowicz, Hjörleifur Halldórsson, Paulina Kaczyńska, Paulina Karkut, Palina Kuchynskaya, Tymon Lewandowski, Agata Lutowska, Julia Maksymiuk, Kornelia Nowak, Aleksandra Strzelińska, Daria Włodarczak, Weronika Wojciechowska, Paulina Woźniak, Angelika Tomkiewicz, Aleksandra Trzuskolas, Martyna Zielińska, Marcelina Żmuda

Artistic supervision: Janusz Marciniak, Monika Szczygieł

Duration of exhibition: 18.05–29.05.2024 — visit (not during the opening) by prior arrangement via e-mail:

The presented exhibition invites its recipients to visit the 5th Drawing Studio run by Dr. Hab. Alicja Jeziorecka, prof. UAP. The title of the exhibition is also one of the topics that students could choose to implement during the 2023–2024 academic year.

The wide spectrum of presented works by students shows the endless possibilities of approaching drawing. In the studio, apart from working with a model or still life, students are tasked with implementing a topic of their choice in any artistic technique. Therefore, the works we will see at the exhibition often take the form of artistic objects, artistic installations, bas-reliefs, sculptures or ceramics. This broad view of drawing results from the freedom of choice, which allows for interactions between various artistic statements made in various materials. That is why paper, wire and fabric interact with each other at the exhibition. The richness of interpretations of reality and the relationships and interactions that occur between these different spheres encourage us to look at drawing from different perspectives.
