Hi-Resolution: Ukrainian Culture and Contemporary Art Now!
Wednesday, December 14, 2022 — Saturday, February 18, 2023
1200: James Art Gallery
Open to the Public
An exhibition created by artists Oleksiy Sai, Nikita Kadan, and curator Ksenia Malykh in collaboration with the James Gallery
The resolve of Ukrainian artists to fight to keep, make, and perpetuate Ukrainian culture is unwavering. This collaborative project of Oleksiy Say, Nikita Kadan and Ksenia Malykh brings the presence of Ukrainian art since the early 1990s to New York audiences as it simultaneously shows the real and present danger of the erasure and loss of this cultural production because of Putin’s war of aggression.
The sheer abundance of artistic creation in these three decades is shown through an immersive environment of contemporary art projections.
Since the war broke out, Ukrainian artists have indefatigably produced scores of posters. During the exhibition a selection of these are visible to holiday passersby along Fifth Avenue.
A special selection of historical works include colorful drawings for public mosaics and theater productions by dissident artist Alla Horska and Fedir Tetyanych’s fantastical renderings for technological inventions for the future.
Artists Oleksiy Sai, Nikita Kadan, and curator Ksenia Malykh have created this project at the James Gallery in collaboration with Katherine Carl and Inga Lace over the past ten months.
Every day Ukrainians act on their resolution to defend and keep Ukrainian culture flourishing, creating with every step the mutual support, social structures and art that make their culture prosperous and strong.
