The Polish Art Foundation (PAF) would like to invite you to join in the upcoming exhibition entitled “Taboo”.


We are looking for works that take a fresh look at our social, political and moral taboos. At the same time we are particularly interested in the artists’ interpretation of their own personal taboos, those encountered in our daily lives.


‘TABOO’ - A thematic exhibition, 9-14 October 2014

The Polish Art Foundation has held another highly successful exhibition namely the 7th International Drawing Biennale, which took place at the Steps Gallery in Carlton, Melbourne. Almost 100 patrons attended our Opening Night, held on Friday the 23rd of August 2013. The exhibition then traveled to Benalla Art Gallery during the month of November.


The Tomasz Ostrowski International Drawing Biennale was launched by the Foundation in 2001, that first competition attracted 128 submissions from 14 countries.

The 7th Biennale showcased 58 works, of a total of 105 entries, sent by 37 artists from places all over the world!


We wanted to congratulate all of our participating artists and thank them on behalf of the Board for their support of this competition throughout the last 14 years.

We would particularly like to thank our Jury Panel for their professional deliberations and expertise: Mrs Eve Crocker, Mr David Glyn Davis, Mr Marian Janczak,

Mr Allan Mitelman and Mr Jarek Wojcik.


And last but not least we would like to formally acknowledge all of our sponsors in particular the ongoing support of the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Sydney as well as Anguz Motors, Bohemia Travel, Henry Bernard P/L, Wisla Continental, Barbara and Lew Steinberg and Tygodnik Polski.
