Kozytski Charity Foundation: The Emigrants and their Broken Ways: Ukrainian contemporary art

20 February @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm AEDT

For centuries, Ukrainians have been compelled to flee their homeland in search of safety, freedom and new horizons.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February, 2022, ushered in a new wave of forced emigration. This exhibition delves into the journey, motives and significance of emigrant life.

Featuring paintings and ceramics of diverse styles and subjects, the exhibition ranges from literal and simplified landscapes to figurative depictions of refugee children, carefree beach vacations, laundry drying in the sun and passionate embraces of lovers. Through these artworks, the exhibition captures the multifaceted life of emigrants, from the process of change to the pursuit of betterment.

The exhibition is part of the We and the World global art project, organized by the Kozytskyi Charity Foundation. Since its establishment in March 2022, the Foundation has curated 34 exhibitions showcasing contemporary Ukrainian art across 13 countries. This is the inaugural exhibition in Australia.
