an exhibition of new work by ALEKSANDRA MIR. The exhibition will run through 20 December 2008.
Of Aleksandra Mir’s work, Waldemar Januszczak recently wrote:
“… Aleksandra Mir, from Lubin, in Poland, is another maker of new maps of the USA, across which she declares the Cold War to be Hot Stuff, in the style of a mustard advert in a hamburger outlet…Young America is a bottomless source of the stuff. This entire display stinks of stupidity and an absent education. Has anyone here read a book or studied history or looked at a Botticelli or questioned a technique or patiently thought their way through an artistic conundrum? Not a chance. This is a generation of paint-happy knownothings brought up on hamburgers and porn, a talentless bloom of post-pop trailer trash that makes our own Brit Artists look like a parade of Einsteins by comparison.”
Waldemar Januszczak, “Don’t want to be an American idiot,” THE SUNDAY TIMES, London, October 8, 2006. (Review of USA Today show at the Royal Academy).
