Ukrainian Avant-Garde of the 1910s and 1920s 

Through September 13, 2015

 

125 original art works for the theater by 13 artists, many who were exiled
or executed during the Stalinist purges of the 1930s for their perceived
political beliefs. The exhibition comprises 142 objects on loan from the
collection of the Museum of Theater, Music, and Cinema Arts of Ukraine in
Kyiv, including art works on paper of costume, set, and makeup design,
photographs, and original posters. See the works by Cubo-Futurist painter
Alexandra Exter, who revolutionized the balletic stage with dancer and
ballet choreographer Bronislava Nijinska; the premier designer for the
productions of the Berezil Theater, Vadym Meller; and Anatol Petrytsky,
whose singularly rich compositions reflected Ukraine's own popular culture,
traditions, and customs.

 <http://www.ukrainianmuseum.org/ex_150509petrykivka.html> Petrykivka: The
Soul of Ukraine

Ukraine's UNESCO Treasure

Through September 13, 2015 (extended)

 

Petrykivka: The Soul of Ukraine is an exhibition of unique Ukrainian folk
art organized by The Ukrainian Museum and the art collectors Yuri Mischenko
and Natalie Pawlenko, whose private collection reflects a variety of
Petrykivka styles. The exhibition includes 35 paintings by 17 artists,
spanning four generations; each of the works is being shown for the first
time in the United States. 

Petrykivka art originated from an ancient decorative painting tradition in
central Ukraine, where it began as painting on interior and exterior adobe
whitewashed walls, ceiling beams, and hearths, as well as decorative
painting on furniture, boxes, and wooden kitchenware. Due to the
perishability of the medium and the turbulent history of Ukraine, only a few
examples of folk decorative painting from central Ukraine predating the 19th
century are preserved in Ukrainian museums.
