Before/after – Pop-Up Exhibition and Auction of Ukrainian Contemporary Art

“Before/After” is a group exhibition of young Ukrainian contemporary art, which captures the zeitgeist in the country before and after the Russian invasion of the artists’ native homeland. Visitors are invited to observe and compare how artistic perception and reflection of reality changed. The curated selection of artworks – performance art, painting, and mixed media- convey feelings of uncertainty but also fragile hope for a safe future. Highlights include pieces by internationally-renowned artists Ona Telos, the collective SOCIA, Orest Hirniy and Danik Manzhos, as well as a display of drawings by children in bomb shelters.

The exhibition will be held in a format of one day pop-up event which will include

1. Reflections from the curator – Anastasia Lebega is a Ukrainian curator and art advisor based London.

2. Live performance by SOCIA collective. In the gallery space artists will transform music into large scale painting — starting at 18:00

3. Live auction of exhibited works

4. Display of children’s drawings sent from the bomb shelters. Visitors will be invited to write/draw a response and send it to young creators
