Contemporary video, pottery art, music

The Ukrainian Week offers a selection of events to attend in March

March 15 – 26, 12 p.m.

Contemporary Art of Israel

The Institute of Contemporary Art

(18d, vul. Konovaltsia, Kyiv

 

Kyiv will soon see an original show presenting video art from Israeli artists. The project involves seven artists, including the well-known ones, such as Sigalit Landau, Nevet Yitzhak, Ran Slavin and Michel Platnik, and new names, such as Raida Adon, Tzion Abraham Hazan and Tamar Hirschfeld. The show will reveal the complexity and the range of problems in the development of countries at the modern epoch of wars and conflicts. It can also draw some parallels between the lives of Ukrainians and Israelis – not only in terms of the territorial conflict, but in terms of history and identity.

 

 

 

 

March 16 – 31, 7 p.m.

Tulip Festival

Kvitkova Poliana (Flower Garden)

Spring is in the air: you don’t have to take a plane to Amsterdam to enjoy the vibrant canvass of tulips. The festival of these flowers is no less beautiful in Ukraine. The show will offer a huge variety of tulips, from Librije and White Liberstar to Matchpoint, Barbados, Flash Point, Pretty Princess, Ice Cream and Queensland. In addition to the ocean of flowers, the guests will have a chance to participate in workshops and taste good food and drinks.

 

 

 

 

Through March 23

Nowhere and everywhere

Lavra gallery

(1, vul. Lavrska, Kyiv)

 

The show by Yevhenia Antonova is the opening episode of the series of personal projects by the graudates of the Kyiv-based School of Contemporary Art. The series will feature works by young artists who are shaping Ukraine’s art space. Nowhere and everywhere is a project of deep and expressive images. The artist brings forward her worldview through abstract, deserted and meditational landscapes. Her intensity of color is impressive, the symbols and multilayer structure of the pieces striking.  

 

 

 

 

March 24, 8 p.m.

Bloom Twins

Atlas

(37-41, vul. Sichovykh Striltsiv, Kyiv)

 

The British duo of Ukrainian-born twin sisters will soon play a show in Kyiv. Anna and Sonya Kupriyenko have built successful music and modeling careers in London where critics often describe them as the next Portishead. The girls describe their style as dark pop, play the flute, piano and harmonica. They plan to learn to play the guitar and drums. Their accomplishments in music already include three digital singles, as well as Get Up, Stand Up, a cover of Bob Marley’s song to support the EuroMaidan.
