Wlad was trained in Poland and Paris, was a partisan in World War Two, and fled to freedom ahead of the advancing Red Army in 1945. He spent four years in a Displaced Persons’ camp in Hohenfels, Bavaria, before migrating to Australia in 1949. He settled in Adelaide in 1950 and lived there until his death.

The exhibition is curated by Dr Adam Dutkiewicz, the artist’s second son, who is a prominent Adelaide art historian and publisher of small press editions on local art and artists.  It presents a selection of around 40 works from the family collection and on loan from private collections and the Art Gallery of South Australia.

The exhibition is part of the 2018 History Festival and is proudly supported by the Royal SA Society of Arts, Inc. The exhibition runs until 10 June 2018.
