The exhibition The Splendor of Textiles presents artistic textiles in the wider context of contemporary art and focuses the attention of viewers on a field of creative work that in recent decades has lain outside the principal zones of interest of leading exhibition institutions. Both the splendor of the title, associated with brilliance, richness and power, and the presentation in a national gallery of art have the goal of returning textiles to their rightful place in the orbits of contemporary art.

Aneta Grzeszykowska’s exhibition features films from recent years and a new photographic series created specially for the show. The selection highlights the key strategies employed by the artist: manipulation of film and photographic media, and thus also of the viewer, and creative appropriation of other artists’ works. The featured projects illustrate also the major themes of her work: reworking of personal histories, issues of bodily representation, such as unceremonious self-exposition, but also self-destructive gestures – obsessive returns to the motif of invisibility, self-erasure.
