Exhibition "Odesa: The Long 20th Century in Art"

The history of art in Odesa in the 20th century is a story of constant evolution, the search for national identity, composed of moments of triumph and trial, culminating in war, but also with hope for reconstruction and continuation of the creative heritage. It is presented in the latest exhibition of the International Cultural Center in Krakow.

Art in Odesa has always reflected the cultural richness, diverse influences and turbulent events that shaped the history of this region in the 20th century. Today, the city is on the front line, and most artistic initiatives were brutally interrupted by the outbreak of a full-scale war in 2022, which resulted in the destruction of many architectural monuments and works of art.

Exhibition "Odesa. The Long 20th Century in Art” presents works that talk about national identity and the role of art in the current war, as well as the arduous process of building the artistic canon and the spread of European art to the ends of the continent throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Through the prism of various nationalities and cultures, it presents history entire southern Ukraine.

The exhibition will be presented at the ICC Gallery from May 17 to September 1, 2024. It will be accompanied by a program of events, including meetings and debates on Ukrainian art, literature and languages and an open vernissage on May 16.

The exhibition contains content that may be inappropriate for minors or highly sensitive people.
