The Pursuit of Happiness exhibition in Poznan, Poland

The Pursuit of Happiness is a curatorial project initiated in late 2008 by Polish artists and art promoters Tekla Wo┼║niak and Zbigniew Kotkiewicz. The project aims to encourage creative discussion on phenomenon of happiness and its pursuit in a contemporary, global context.

 'The Pursuit of Happiness' was held in the main city gallery of Poznan - an old socialist building right in the middle of a beautiful old medieval looking square.  There were 35 artists from all over the world participating in this large scale and very ambitious exhibition.  I exhibited my 'Paint Stuff' piece and a couple of other new paintings, it was VERY exciting to go over to Poznan for the opening!  100s of people turned up and it was all very posh, big speeches from the curators and stuff!
