The idea for the project came from Patrycja Longawa, the prorector of the Media and Social Communication Collegium at the University in Rzeszow. She noticed that women are very often the muses and subjects of art, but are usually portrayed while conforming to typical gender roles such as mother, caretaker or lover. She wanted to challenge her students to show something divergent from that. The name “Woman in Poster” comes from the form of the artworks, resembling posters.

Artists whose works participate in the exhibition come from different parts of the world, including China, Japan, Azerbaijan, Ecuador, Mexico, Turkey, Ukraine and Poland. The artworks are divided into three parts, displayed: June 20th-July 9th – part one, July 11th –July 30th – part 2, September 1st-October 31st – part three. All of them will be exhibited at the Center of Tourism and Recreation at Kielnerowa.
