This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom @ Venice 2022

  • TUE - SUN
    23/04 > 07/08
    10 am - 6 pm

Organizing Institution: Viktor Pinchuk Foundation

Venue: Scuola Grande della Misericordia, Cannaregio 3599


The PinchukArtCentre and Victor Pinchuk Foundation announce a new focus for its official Collateral Event, This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia in Venice, from 23rd of April until 7th of August 2022. The exhibition, presented in partnership with the Office of the President of Ukraine and Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, champions the work of contemporary Ukrainian artists, whilst also contextualizing Ukrainian history and culture, with support from international artists. This replaces The Future Generation Art Prize @ Venice 2022. Across two chapters, the exhibition reasserts Ukraine’s cultural resilience that has always defined itself, even in the hardest of times, through its ability to think and create critically. Artists refuse direct war narratives and instead reflect deeply on their meaning, origin, and impact. This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom is about strength, it is about making, it is about friendship. But most of all it is about our collective freedoms—the freedom to choose, the freedom to speak, and the freedom to exist.
