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.

Exhibition Life in Wood

image

Selections of everyday and decorative objects made of wood from the Museum's permanent collection. The use of wood for the production of vital, indispensable, as well as decorative objects was a highly developed and widely distributed phenomenon in Ukraine with origins reaching ancient times. Woodcarving is a major branch of Ukrainian folk art. Works of professional artists were influenced by universal trends, styles, and demands of the clientele. Folk artisans, on the other hand, were more conservative. They strictly adhered to traditional styles and used decorative motifs with a deeply symbolic meaning which according to their beliefs possessed magical powers. Nevertheless, this conservatism did allow for innovations and originality often introduced by talented artisans, as long as they were contained within a traditional framework.
