Conceived as a contemporary Polish-Ukrainian analysis of the cultural and historical narratives termed ‘Ukrainian myths’, this exhibition will review works drawn from the leading Ukrainian museum of art to examine stereotypes and conceptions perpetuated both in Poland and Ukraine.

Cossacks, the steppe, and the Ukrainian khata (cabin) in works by classic artists including Shevchenko, Brandt, and Repin will be juxtaposed with works by early 20th-century avant-garde and contemporary artists to point up the vitality of the myths and their contemporary incarnations, trace the canons of the Ukrainian identity, and look at present-day Ukraine.

Organized in partnership with the National Art Museum of Ukraine in Kyiv (NAMU).

The project is co-financed by the City of Krakow.
