Curator-Led Tour of Painting in Excess: Kyiv's Art Revival, 1985-1993
Join exhibition curator Olena Martynyuk Ph.D. for a tour of the exuberant paintings featured in our new exhibition, Painting in Excess: Kyiv's Art Revival, 1985-1993.
Perestroika and the impending fall of the Soviet Union resulted in the great upheaval in the art scene of Kyiv, Ukraine. The explosion of the new art styles in the city propelled it from a backwater province of politically correct socialist realist easel painting to an emerging art capital. Martynyuk will introduce visitors to the varying styles that appeared at this exhilarating time and situate the Ukrainian phenomenon within the global 1980s art world.
Registration is required for both the Zoom livestream and the in-person tour (with a limited number of spots).
The project is supported by the Avenir Foundation Endowment Fund and the Dodge Charitable Trust–Nancy Ruyle Dodge, Trustee, with additional support from the Abramovych Foundation and the Tymofieiev Foundation. The publication received support from the Ukrainian Institute in Kyiv.
