“Revolution of Dignity Art Exhibit: Images from Ukraine's Maidan, 2013-2014” in New York
The Embassy of Ukraine in the USA presents at the Ukrainian Museum “Revolution of Dignity Art Exhibit: Images from Ukraine's Maidan, 2013-2014”, which will take place until March 26.
The Ukrainian Museum is its first location in NYC, fifth in the USA, and 14-th all around, including Ukrainian cities. In the USA, the Travelling Exhibit has already been hosted by the Embassy of Ukraine and Kennan Institute in Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., with the support of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council and the Fulbright program. The University of Arkansas hosted the Exhibit in Fayetteville, and the Federal Cultural Foundation co-sponsored the display at the Ukrainian Cultural Center of St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church in Baltimore.
The Traveling Exhibit features 17 Ukrainian artists who participated in the Revolution of Dignity and expressed their thoughts and emotions through the works of art: Julia Beliaeva, Oksana Chepelyk, Olena Golub, Anton Hauk, Mariana Honcharenko, Irena Khovanets, Marian Luniv, Olexa Mann, Roman Mykhailiuk, Anastasiya Nekypela, Mariya Pavlenko, Tetiana Rusetska, Ivan Semesyuk, Andriy Sydorenko, Glib Vysheslavsky, Andriy Yermolenko, and Nick Zavilinskyi. Natalia Moussienko is a curator and author of the project, Marian Luniv is an art-manager.
Artists work in many mediums: painting, collage, embroidery, and photos; however, this Exhibit presents all the works in poster form, which is conceptual for the mobility of the project and highlights the mood of Ukraine’s Maidan.
The Travelling Exhibit has become successful due to the everyday devoted work of the multi-institutional international team of great professionals, with whom the Embassy partners. Initiated by Natalia Moussienko, the cultural diplomacy project is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the Fulbright Program, the Ukrainian Fulbright Circle, the Kyiv Kennan Institute and the Modern Art Research Institute of National Arts Academy of Ukraine.
The Exhibit is open for public viewing from 11:30 am until 5 pm Wednesday thru Sunday at the Ukrainian Museum in NYC: 222 East Six Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues).
