Ukrainian Artist Group Show - Ukraine: Courage to create

Featuring artists: Vitaly Khoma | ELIS luna | Natan Markman | Ona Telos | Alina Kostrichenko | Olga Sherstyuk | Zlata Kontseva | Diana Berg

Due to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, millions of Ukrainians were forced to flee their homes, abandoning their normal lives and plans, or fight the enemy. This is equally true of Ukrainian artists and the country's cultural life. Many Ukrainian cultural monuments and artefacts have already been destroyed, such as pieces by Maria Primachenko, a well-known Ukrainian artist of the twentieth century, which were partially destroyed by a shell in the Ivankiv Museum in Kyiv region. And if you look at photos from Kharkiv, Odesa, and other Ukrainian cities where the war has been going on for months, you'll see monuments covered with sandbags and fences, which ordinary citizens used to protect them from bombs, putting their lives at risk.
