2 Orig. Posters-Polish Jazz Festivals - 1984/1985
Price: $195.00
Notes from a recent exhibition of Polish Jazz posters in Chicago included the following: ''Up until a few short years before its collapse, the Soviet Union had banned jazz -- as a dangerously seductive Capitalist decadence. Indeed, jazz was contraband in most of the Socialist Bloc. The far more humane, so-called ''Polish Road to Socialism'' made a place for a jazz obligato. A guest concert by Stan Getz in Warsaw would draw stadium-size crowds. Such response was not unusual. Jazz flourished in small clubs, student circles, and, ultimately, with official sanction. Jazz offered rebellion; a release, a freedom often elsewhere enjoyed only in Polish graphic art. These posters tell much about public perception and reception of jazz in Poland. That emerges beyond the events and their appearance in art.'' Indeed Poland in the 1970''s and 80''s was a hotbed of artistic creativity - not only musically, but also for poster artists who were consumed by social, political and intellectual changes which were quite literally taking the country by storm. These posters are in very good condition and are being sold unframed: 1985 measures 38 x 26.5 inches and appears to have been printed in a small run of only 5000 pieces, and 1984 measures 38 x 27 inches. These posters were in the private collection of a noted jazz musician and producer and are only a couple of hundreds which we have just received. The others will be appearing in our ebay store shortly. Price is for both posters. All of our posters, prints and pochoirs are authentic, vintage items.
