Conceived as a contemporary Polish‑Ukrainian analysis of cultural and historical narrations termed “Ukrainian myths”, the exhibition will review works drawn from the leading Ukrainian museum of art and address to stereotypes and conceptions perpetuated both in Poland and Ukraine.

The Cossacks, the steppes, and the Ukrainian khata (cabin) painted by classic artists such as Kryvolap, Brandt, Wyczółkowski or Repin will be juxtaposed with works by early 20th‑century avant‑garde and contemporary artists to point up the vitality of the myths, detect their present‑day incarnations, trace the canons of the Ukrainian identity but also look at today’s Ukraine.

Curators: Dr. Oksana Barshynova, Dr. Żanna Komar

Organised in partnership with the National Art Museum of Ukraine in Kyiv.
