Playing to the Past
(Exhibition of photographic works)
Izolyatsiya Foundation (Naberezhno-Lugova 8)
5 October – 19 November
To understand the present, you have to have an understanding of the past – this concept applies to Ukraine, a country where the history and mentality were greatly transformed during the Soviet period. This exhibition of works by photo-correspondents from renowned soviet newspaper Izvestiya shows not Soviet reality, but the utopian world the communist ideology constructed via media, propaganda, and through sowing seeds in the minds of people. Exhibition visitors can browse the works themselves to create their own picture of Ukraine’s Soviet past.

(Exhibition of paintings by Ihor Husyev)
Voloshyn Gallery (Tereshchenkivska13)
27 September – 22 October
This new exhibition by Ihor Husyev has an autumnal flavour: nature and city landscapes are pictured in a state of flux. What seems like a classical painting at first glance, is in fact a masterly post-modernistic sleight of hand: each picture features a number of colourful stripes as if it is a still motion frame. Take yourself on a journey among Husyev’s works and discover his viewpoint on the modern world.
