    The exhibition Young Poland: An Arts and Crafts Movement won Curatorial Exhibition Prize

    The exhibition Young Poland: An Arts and Crafts Movement was awarded the Curatorial Exhibition Prize by Association for Art History. The National Museum in Krakow was a co-organizer of the exhibition in London, and the co-curator was Professor Andrzej Szczerski, Director of the NMK.

    This prize celebrates excellence in the curation of temporary exhibitions and their success in communicating art historical research to audiences. Key factors include the originality of the exhibition’s concept and the significance of the accompanying research, as well as the effectiveness and inspiring character of the show’s presentation and engagement with the public.

    Through a book and exhibition, the project examines the decorative and applied arts of the Young Poland (Młoda Polska) period in the context of the international arts and crafts movement, particularly the work of William Morris, John Ruskin and their followers in Britain. The book was published on 1 December 2020, ahead of a major exhibition on the subject at William Morris Gallery in Autumn 2021.
