Elżbieta Dzikowska

Elżbieta Dzikowska is a historian and art critic and a member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA). She was Chairman of the Association of Art Critics (entitled 'POKAZ' / 'Show') and curator (alongside Wiesław Wierzchowski) of the first Polish art exhibition dedicated to emigration (entitled We are) for the Warsaw-based Zachęta museum. She also curated the Ars Erotica exhibition at the National Museum in Warsaw, the Last Judgement exhibit for several Varsovian galleries, and many individual exhibitions of Polish artists. She has published a series of interviews with Polish visual artists for the publication Polish Artists in World Art (awarded the prize for the most beautiful book at the International Book Fair in Warsaw in 2001). She specialises in artistic photography (having had many exhibitions in museums and galleries) and documentary journalism, particularly evident in her travel guide series, Pea and Cabbage: Journeys Across Poland! and albums such as The World's Smile. She is an acknowledged explorer, having led the cult programme Pepper and Vanilla with her husband Tony Halik. She promoted the building of a monument dedicated to the engineer Ernest Malinowski, the creator of the highest railway on Earth in Peru and the opening of the T. Halik Museum of Travellers in Toruń. Along with her husband, she took part in an exploratory expedition to the last city of the Incas. Her many artist friendss have inspired the publication of her work. Some of these masters of art (such as Józef Czapski, Władysław Hasior, Jonasz Stern, and Jerzy Sienicki) have since passed away, thereby leaving her interviews with them as an invaluable documentary leading to a better understanding of their work.
