 From November 20th in Warsaw's Zacheta Gallery and from March 2005 in 
the Tretyakov State Gallery in Moscow will be held the exhibition, 
"Warsaw-Moscow,1900-2000". The concept of this exhibition makes 
reference to the earlier exhibitions: "Paris-Moscow,1900-1930" from 
1979, "Berlin-Moscow, 1900-1950" from 1995 and its second part 
"Berlin-Moscow, 1950-2000", presented in early 2004 in the 
Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin, and then in the State Historical Museum 
in Moscow.

The exhibition is the first attempt to look at the twentieth century 
art of the two countries without the encumbrances which marked their 
mutual relations up until 1989. This is a "bird's eye view" on the 
richly multifarious Polish-Russian artistic relations during this 
tempestuous period, with indications of fields still little known, or 
sometimes completely unknown (like the reception of Stanislaw 
Wyspianski's art in Russia), which in the future are worthy of 
becoming the subject of specialist research.
