On March 21, 2016, the University of Amsterdam in partnership with the Kennan Institute Kyiv Office and with financial support from the International Renaissance Foundation will hold a round-table «Memory and Media in the Crisis around Ukraine». The round-table discussion will be followed by the opening of the «Revolution of Dignity Art Exhibit: Images from Ukraine’s Maidan, 2013-2014 Art» exhibit.
Opening at 6 pm on March 21, 2016
Address: Bungehuis (r. 004), Spuistraat 210, Amsterdam, 1012 VT
The exhibit will present the Dutch public 17 Ukrainian artists, who participant in events on the Maidan: Julia Beliaeva, Glib Vysheslavsky, Anton Hauk, Olena Golub, Maryana Honcharenko, Andriy Yermolenko, Nick Zavilinskyi, Marian Luniv, Olexa Mann, Roman Mykhailiuk, Anastasiya Nekypela, Mariya Pavlenko, Ivan Semesyuk, Tetiana Rusetska, Irena Khovanets, Oksana Chepelyk and Andriy Sydorenko.
The exhibit was first displayed in Kyiv in September 2014. After its Kyiv debut, the show travelled around the United States and was displayed in 11 Ukrainian cities.
Dr. Natalia Moussienko, project curator and a leading researcher at the Modern Art Research Institute of National Arts Academy of Ukraine, believes that this exhibit will serve as an effective instrument of Ukraine’s cultural diplomacy on the eve of the April 6 Referendum on Ukraine’s association agreement with the European Union. It will share information about Euromaidan with the international audience, foster dialogue and raise awareness about Ukraine’s history, culture and partnership with Europe.
