Modernists in Ukraine

Modernists in Ukraine
#Exhibitions

Telling the story of the modernist movement in art in Ukraine is not a simple task. The narrative of these avant-gardes is intertwined with the history of the country and developed in a context characterized by the collapse of empires, the First World War, the struggle for independence and the birth of Soviet Ukraine. A long era of profound upheavals which at the same time and paradoxically was a fertile ground that made possible a period of bold artistic experimentation and true flowering of art, literature and theater in Ukraine. This exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts aims to be the most comprehensive survey of modern art in Ukraine to date in Britain and brings together over 70 works, from oil paintings and sketches to collage and theater sets, many in loan from the National Art Museum of Ukraine and the Theater, Music and Cinema Museum of Ukraine, with the aim of protecting them from the dangers of destruction resulting from the war unleashed by the Russian invasion of the country.
