/ Exhibition Roman Cieslewicz, la fabrique des images
From 3 May to 23 September 2018, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is paying tribute to Roman Cieslewicz (1930–1996). A major figure in graphic design in the second half of the 20th century, he was a key artist of the Polish Poster School before conquering the world of graphic design when he arrived in France. His eclectic oeuvre spanned a variety of graphic expressions ranging from posters and advertising to photomontage, publishing and illustration. His images scrutinize the world, are its reflection and testimony, and reveal the singularity of an artist and politically committed personality. Roman Cieslewicz saw his role as a graphic designer in direct confrontation with current events. More than 700 exhibits chronologically and thematically illustrate the prolific and exceptional oeuvre of one of the greatest graphic designers who still influences the graphic design universe nowadays.
