Exhibition — CIM

image

CIM is an exhibition that plays on the notion of the collective, and what cultural and ethnic topographies bind first and second generation Ukrainian-American and Ukrainian born artists from the New York City area. The word “CIM” means "seven" in Ukrainian, and this exhibition convenes seven individual experiences as a collective of artists working in a wide range of styles and media. The seven contemporary artists participating in this group exhibition are Luba Drozd, Adriana Farmiga, Maya Hayuk, Roman M. Hrab, Yuri Masnyj, Christina Shmigel, and Marko Shuhan.

Finding a thread to connect the artists and their practices can sometimes prove to be elusive in group shows. The artists in this show produce work that ranges from the abstract to the representational to the conceptual, from object-based to installation scale work, incorporating drawing, painting, sculpture, and video and sound. Despite this variance, a dialogue bridging the aesthetic, the figurative, the tangible and the intangible is established between the artists and the works chosen for this exhibition by guest curator Roman Hrab.

EXHIBITION CATALOGUE
A softcover, color illustrated, bi-lingual (English and Ukrainian) catalogue titled CIM accompanies the exhibition. In addition to the guest curator's introduction, the catalogue includes transcripted interviews with the seven participating artists conducted by Olena Chervonik, Daniel W. Dietrich II Curatorial Fellow in Contemporary Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art. The one-on-one interaction between artist and commentator serves to amplify the viewer's discourse with the exhibited works of art.

Their development, establishment, and use were based on practical, functional, customary needs and requirements, esthetic tastes, and hallowed beliefs in their magical power to safeguard against evil. The headdresses in this exhibition, most of them on loan from the collection of Vasyl Nayda, are from the Borshchiv and Zalishchyky districts of western Podillia. Traditional Ukrainian Folk Headdresses: The Borshchiv and Zalishchyky Districts is comprised of wedding wreaths for brides and bridesmaids, men's headwear, married women's headwraps, as well as accessories and decorative items such as woven sashes and gerdany (seed beaded strips).
