Art Déco exhibition – The Mazovian Museum in Płock

Being a part of Mazovian Museum in Plock, Art Déco is about 1000 m2 of space dedicated to the art of the interwar period. It is the largest presentation of the art collection of the 1920s and 1930s in Poland. The new permanent exhibition is a unique combination of historical exhibits, perfectly designed and arranged space, and modern audiovisual technology. Thanks to the combination of all these elements, it was possible to tell the story of this unique period in art in a credible and interesting way.

The tour begins with an interactive calendar introducing the subject of the exhibition. The first floor exhibition is an urban imitation of the city at night, which perfectly creates the atmosphere of the interwar period and art déco style. Here one can see the interiors of tenement houses, a Fashion House with a rich collection of outfits from the 1920s and 1930s and its accessories, a jeweller’s store, a bank and a mini-cinema. These spaces expose the historic collections and faithfully reflect the atmosphere of the era. The dominant element of the urban development is the 1926 JOWETT Special Roadster vintage car. The exhibition is complemented by numerous interactive stations operated via touch screens. Noteworthy is also a 3D mapping, created using four high-end projectors, complementing the architecture and enlivening the space.
On the second floor, visitors can see an arranged inter-war apartment with interiors – living room, dining room, bedroom and kitchen. In addition, there is an art and craft gallery, consisting of applied and decorative items made of glass, ceramics and metal, as well as sculptures and paintings – including “Still Life” by Tamara Lempicka. In the central part is the Hall of Identity, thematically related to the Polish pavilion created for the 1925 International Exhibition of Decorative Arts and Design in Paris.
