Postponed Futures, an exhibition exploring the 20th century Ukrainian avant-garde through the lens of contemporary Ukrainian art, opens today at London’s Gallery for Russian Arts and Design (GRAD).
Curated by Kiev-based artist Nikita Kadan and presented in collaboration with Waterside Contemporary, Postponed Futures offers an alternative take on the practices of the Ukrainian avant-garde through placing historical works in dialogue with contemporary pieces of art.
Among the 20th century pieces displayed are works by masters of the avant-garde Oleksandr Bohomazov, Vasyl Yermilov, Maria Sinyakova and Oleksandr Khvostenko-Khvostov, which will be showcased together with a number of contemporary works: collages by Lada Nakonechna, a film by Mykola Ridnyi and a sculpture by curator Nikita Kadan, inspired by Vasyl Yermilov’s Monument to Three Revolutions.
Postponed Futures will be on at GRAD in central London until 24 June 2017. Find out more here.
