Franciszka Themerson UBU at Richard Saltoun Gallery

A posthumous look at celebrated Polish-born artist Franciszka Themerson's life-long obsession with Ubu Roi

21 July 2017 – 15 September 2017 | Visit website

Fitzrovia's Richard Saltoun Gallery - which has done a great job championing work from lesser known post-war conceptual, feminist and performance artists - is hosting an exhibition focusing on the work of Polish-born artist Franciszka Themerson.

Themerson had a life-long obsession with playwright Alfred Jarry's seminal late 19th century play Ubu Roi. The play's punk aethethetic, slapstick imagery and grotesque parodying of class stereotypes led Themerson to create whole bodies of work - including the 12 masks displayed here alongside archive material. 

Franciszka Themerson UBU runs at Richard Saltoun Gallery, Fitzrovia, from July 21 - September 15. Entry is free.
 

Richard Saltoun Gallery , 111 Great Titchfield Street , London W1W 6RY
