Wladyslaw Dutkiewicz (1918-1999): 100th Anniversary Exhibition

Wladyslaw Dutkiewicz, Self Portrait, 1945, oil on canvas board, 45 x 35cm (Graeme Hastwell)

This exhibition celebrates the life of artist Wladyslaw Dutkiewicz and his dynamic contribution to cultural life in Adelaide in the mid-late 20th century.

Polish-born Dutkiewicz was a painter, sculptor, writer, actor, stage designer and theatre director. As a Polish partisan he fought both the Nazis and Soviets during WWII and was imprisoned by both. After arriving in Adelaide as a refugee in 1950 he was first noticed for his set designs for plays.

In the 1950s until the mid-1970s he was widely regarded as a leader of the lively modern art movement in Adelaide.
