In the Eye of the Storm: Modernism in Ukraine, 1900 – 1930s

The European Cultural Foundation and TBA21 Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary will open the “In the Eye of the Storm: Modernism in Ukraine, 1900 – 1930s” exhibition on 28 November in Madrid with two panel discussions.

Under the high patronage of the Office of the President of Ukraine and the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the exhibition will bring to Madrid the most comprehensive survey of Ukrainian modern art to date, with over 65 works. The first panel discussion will offer a critical review of the Ukrainian history of art during the first decades of the twentieth century and the second will offer a space for a policy conversation on the need to stand in solidarity with Ukraine and its artistic and cultural community.
The panel will discuss the vital role of culture in shaping a sense of togetherness, a European sentiment, in times of crisis, recovery and beyond.
