Lviv Municipal Art Center resumes its exhibition activities. Along with the “Cooperation” space for joint work of the displaced persons and Lviv residents working in the creative and social spheres, we are launching “Shelter” exhibition project for Ukrainian artists.
Responsible for the Shelter:
25.03.2022 –KINDER ALBUM
“My paintings are a shelter for me. When I paint, I immerse myself into them, as if they were a safe environment. Monotonous work infuses me with a sense of safety, because it takes me back to the peaceful time”.
25.03.2022 –Vlada Ralko
“Painting is the only language so far that has come back to me since the first days of the new invasion (because the war has been there for eight years). I can’t find proper words for things in the new light that burns out my eyes. This is how I manage to communicate presently. The series hasn’t got a name yet either”.
“Shelter” exhibition project for Ukrainian artists is aimed at demonstrating reactionary art that has emerged in the time of russia’s attack on Ukraine.
Artists turn into the persons responsible for the shelter and fill the space of the Lviv Municipal Art Center choosing the method and principle of exhibiting their works on their own.
Objects are located in those rooms that are actually used by the Municipal Art Center as the safest places within its premises during air alarms.
The description of the exhibitions presents the impressions of artists from their own shelters. These are perhaps the only places that may save them during the war in Ukraine. Likewise, the works of art become a refuge for the messages that artists communicate to the world.
