Join Ukrainian artists Oleksiy Sai, Nikita Kadan, filmmaker Tetiana Khodakivska, curator Ksenia Malykh, with exhibition artist Lesia Khomenko and art historian colleagues Dr. Ksenia Nouril, James Gallery curator Katherine Carl, and Inga Lāce, C-MAP Central and Eastern Europe Fellow at the Museum of Modern Art, for an evening of cultural conversation. After a tour of the exhibition, the participants will discuss artmaking during this time of the ongoing Russian war of aggression and the art historical lineage of nonconformist art practices and social commentary that questioned imperialistic reality and actively created a new reality from the late 1980s to the present.

The resolve of Ukrainian artists fighting to keep, make, and perpetuate Ukrainian culture is unwavering. This exhibition brings the presence of 51 artworks by 40 Ukrainian artists (late 1980s–2022) to New York audiences through projections, an array of anti-war posters made in the past several months, and a concise selection of key historical works on paper.
