From Ukraine: Dare to Dream

The Victor Pinchuk Foundation and the PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv, on 18 April 2024 presented an official collateral event of the 60th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, titled "From Ukraine: Dare to Dream".
The exhibition is held at Palazzo Contarini Polignac in Venice until 1 August 2024. It marks a continuation of PinchukArtCentre’s proactive engagement with Ukrainian art on a global and national stage since the outbreak of war in 2022.

Starting with the notion of the world at an inflection point – when storms and climate change ravage lands far and wide, and political extremes are seizing momentum – the exhibition asks: ‘Can we imagine tomorrow? Do we have the courage to dream?’ At a crucial moment where the future is hidden, fundamental changes are on the horizon, and 22 artists and collectives weave a tapestry of stories and hopes grown within the shadows of global conflicts.

'From Ukraine: Dare to Dream' include the artworks of the artists Kateryna Aliinyk, Allora & Calzadilla, Alex Baczyński-Jenkins, Fatma Bucak, David Claerbout, Shilpa Gupta, Oleg Holosiy, Nikita Kadan, Zhanna Kadyrova, Dana Kavelina, Nikolay Karabinovych, Lesia Khomenko, Yana Kononova, Kateryna Lysovenko, Otobong Nkanga, Wilfredo Prieto, Oleksiy Sai, Anton Saenko, Fedir Tetianych, Anna Zvyagintseva, Roman Khimei and Yarema Malashchuk, Daniil Revkovskiy and Andriy Rachinskiy.

One of the impactful pieces is an organ created by Zhanna Kadyrova from the fired missiles used by russia to bomb Ukraine. The artist collected shells from the Kyiv region and affixed them to the instrument. During the exhibition, musicians perform compositions of classical russian music on the instrument.

Location: Palazzo Contarini Polignac, Sestiere Dorsoduro, 874, 30123, Venice, Italy
Open until 1 August 2024
Opening hours: 10 am – 6 pm every day except Monday
