Frith Street Gallery is pleased to announce the first UK exhibition of artist, educator and activist Małgorzata Mirga-Tas.
Mirga-Tas’s work addresses anti-Romani stereotypes and engages in building an affirmative iconography of Romani communities. She often depicts everyday life: relationships, alliances and shared activities.
The series of portraits in this exhibition is entitled Siukar Manusia (which can be translated from Romani as great, or wonderful people). The images are of first-generation Romani inhabitants of the Nowa Huta district in eastern Kraków and have evolved from two earlier projects.
