This event has ended.

Art at the Institute is pleased to announce New Perspectives: 8 Contemporary Artists from Ukraine, a selling group exhibition, presenting works in different media by artists in the forefront of current art practice in Ukraine. Organized in cooperation with Mystetska Zbirka Gallery (Kyiv, Ukraine), New Perspectives is curated by Dr. Walter Hoydysh of The Ukrainian Institute together with Max and Julia Voloshyn of Mystetska Zbirka Gallery.

Today, Ukraine supports one of the most dynamic and visible art scenes in Eastern Europe. Young Ukrainian curators participate and contribute programming at international art symposia and biennials, and new commercial galleries and non-profit institutions proliferate. These platforms cultivate lively critical and public discourse, affording artists and like-cultural practitioners a comprehensive presence in the prevailing contemporary landscape. Its new generation of artists is highly trained in traditional art theory and execution, yet is acutely aware of contemporary domestic and global concerns. New Perspectives presents select Ukrainian artists preferring self-developed techniques to produce critically recognized signature works from paintings on canvas to digital renderings — employing pop-inspired iconography, national identity, gender, environment, and fantasy.
