Sculptor Edward Krasinski was a key member of Poland's neo-avant-garde of the 1960s and 70s. His work was rooted in Surrealism and Constructivism, but also deftly navigated between Minimalism and Conceptualism. This deeply satisfying and substantial monograph is published on the occasion of the first retrospective exhibition devoted to the artist's work since his death in 2004. It focuses on Krasinski's unique exhibition designs--grandiose settings for his works which completely transformed the original exhibition spaces. It features generous documentary portraits of Krasinski, many of which were created in collaboration with the photographer Eustachy Kossakowski, and many of which are reproduced here for the first time. Special attention is paid to the legendary Foksal Gallery in Warsaw, which Krasinski helped to establish in 1966. Important exhibitions are investigated, including the artist's contribution to the 1970 Tokyo Biennial. Several of Krasinski's key works, whose whereabouts had been unknown for many years, were unearthed while the retrospective was being researched--and they are displayed here at last.
