In the Eye of the Storm. Modernism in Ukraine
"I had the pleasure of attending a special event dedicated to the introduction to the Royal Academy’s 2024 exhibition “In the Eye of the Storm. Modernism in Ukraine, 1900-1930s” on the 29 of November 2023 in London, the project that I have the honour to be engaged in."
The introduction was presented by Ann Dumas, a curator at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and consultant curator of European art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The event has been organised by the Trustees of the Royal Academy of Arts and the Natalia Cola Foundation. The event was followed by an exclusive private view of the Marina Abramović exhibition for the guests of the introduction.
The upcoming exhibition at RA will be the final stop of the “In the Eye of the Storm. Modernism in Ukraine, 1900-1930s” exhibition’s tour, which began last year at Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum in Madrid and is running through the end of January at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels.
