International Poster Biennale – change of organiser
During a meeting held on the 1st of September 2017, the Program Council of the International Poster Biennale (IPB) approved a proposition to change the organiser of the IPB from the National Museum in Warsaw to the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. The campaign to change the organisation in favour of the Academy of Fine Arts was initiated by academics and the surrounding milieu related to poster art and design. It has since received the support of the Academy authorities and been approved by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
Thus, the current Program Council of the IPB – founded in 2014 to organise the 25th edition of the IPB and provoke a wider discussion about the future of this historic event – has ceased its activities.
