The Lviv Month in Wroclaw event is launched on the 1st of April 2016 with the3rdUkrainian Cross-Section Triennial of Contemporary Ukrainian Art, and this day it is represented by the reCREATION exhibition, featuring more than two hundred art objects and fifty artists from all over Ukraine (25 Market Square, Wroclaw).
We cordially invite you to join the opening ceremony of the Lviv Month in Wroclaw, i.e. thirty days of Ukrainian culture and art, to be opened with the UKRAINIAN CROSS-SECTION: reCREATION exhibition.
All six floors of the ancient building in the heart of the city (from the cellar up to the roof) will host the largest and the most diverse in Europe exhibition of Ukrainian contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, performances, new media art, represented by more than two hundred art works and fifty artists from all over Ukraine.
The 3rd Ukrainian Cross-Section Triennial of Contemporary Ukrainian Art consists of three complementary parts: UKRAINIAN CROSS-SECTION: reCREATION exhibition; the [De][Re]construction curatorial project on the history of Ukrainian new media art; the mighty programme of performance art.
The period between the 2nd (2013) and the 3rd (2016) Triennial is featured by one of the most dramatic moments in the modern history of Ukraine. So, topics and issues in focus of artists are the result of "explosion" that took place in Ukraine after the Maidan events and the Revolution of Dignity. That explosion is radicalizing and catalyzing the research of transformations in contemporary art of Ukraine. The reCREATION exhibition focuses on problems that can be defined by means of such concepts as: uncertainty, weakness, anxiety, migration, identity, change, negotiations, dialogue, compromise, aberration, paradox, trauma, hate, ugliness and death.
The exhibition opening will be followed by the Kostiantyn Zorkin’s performance.
The Lviv Month in Wroclaw opening ceremony will be also accompanied by a music programme (concerts by Vivienne Mort band, Hycz Orkestr, Olesya Zdorovetska) and literature actions: guests and residents of the European Capital of Culture 2016 will meet with Yuri Andrukhovych, and Bohdan Zadura is going to present the Letters from Ukraine poetry anthology: the 600-page collection of the newest Ukrainian poetry and its Polish translations.
The Ukrainian film programme will be symbolically started with the Gamer film by Oleg Sentsov, preceded by an introductory lecture: Dariusz Jablonski, the President of the Polish Film Academy.
