The fifth edition of the Triennial of Contemporary Art Ukrajins'kyj Zriz is entitled "UKRAINE! UNMUTED.” The curatorial concept of the exhibition was prepared by Vlodko Kaufman, in cooperation with Sergiy Petlyuk. In the first place, the exhibition was carried out in Lithuania in December 2022, as part of the European Capital of Culture in Kaunas. The exhibition will be opened on September, 22 at 6 p.m. and will last until November, 10 (from Tuesday - Saturday, 12-6 p.m.)
The idea of the exhibition is to strengthen the voice of fighting Ukraine. The Ukrainian realities are determined mostly by war, by the scale of aggression the world hasn’t seen since WWII, the aggression at the door and a every minute menace. The war is a stimulus for many changes in Ukrainian society and public institutions. The War in Ukraine Is the True Culture War. With Russia trying to erase Ukraine’s national identity, the fight to preserve, and build upon, Ukraine’s artistic heritage has taken on new urgency. The purpose of the exhibition is to express emotions through art where the artistic voices can be heard and "unmute" becomes achievable.
