Long Path to Freedom closes tomorrow

Saturday, January 17, 2015 - 12:00pm - 4:00pm

Long Path to Freedom continues. It is a special exhibition presented by the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, 2320 W. Chicago Ave., that documents and reflects upon the activism, unrest and trauma experienced during recent ongoing political crisis surrounding the Ukrainian revolution: A period widely considered the country’s most tumultuous since achieving independence in 1991.

Long Path to Freedom includes three curated components featuring work by Ukrainian artists across digital, graphic and photographic mediums

"The Breath of Maidan" captures the unique spirit of the protest movement of Winter 2013-14 on Kiev’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square); the epicenter for activism and subsequent violence.

"Vision of Trauma" accounts the devastation caused by the separatist movement and resulting war with photographic images of displaced citizens and volunteer military.

The final component, an installation, emulates “Mystetsky Barbakan,” an improvised gallery of digital prints created by artists that functioned on the barricades in Kiev in Winter 2013-14. The installation combines Ukrainian artifacts and prints by Olexa Mann and Ivan Semesiuk.

Preview the exhibit

Exhibit continues through January 18, 2015 Hours: Wed. thru Sun. noon to 4 p.m.
