The exhibition presented at the Centre is special and unique. For the first and only time in his artistic career, Jacek Świgulski presents his works in the form of a retrospective. The paintings are arranged non-chronologically, in order to highlight the universality of their message. The author is not concerned with a specific time and place, but with the universality of the message, the simplification of representation, the synthesis of thinking, in accordance with the teaching profile of the Władysław Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź.
