IT HAS BEEN FIVE YEARS SINCE HOSTILITIES WERE INITIATED BY RUSSIA WHEN IT INVADED CRIMEA AND EASTERN UKRAINE.

Meet Yulia Shashkova, one of the directors, who is flying in from Ukraine to present and discuss her film.

This documentary was shot in real time primarily during the Revolution of Dignity, 2013-2014. The time was very intense for a nation that was still floundering among the ruins of Soviet Union. But with great hope for a bright future, the people of Ukraine stood ready to fight. The filmmakers did too, and continue to fight, not with weapons, but armed with cameras.

The First Company is a film that rips away the masks of civil society in times of conflict – good and evil, hatred and love, disputes and reconciliation. This is a story about brothers-in-arms, friends, patriots, who against all odds retained their humanity. After the events on the Maidan and throughout the war they are the ones creating a new Ukraine.

The film will be introduced and discussed by Dr. Lubomyr Hajda (Harvard University) and Sevgil Musaieva (Turkish-Ukrainian-Crimean Tatar Studies at CMES, Harvard University)

Jamie Doran is an award-winning Irish-Scottish independent documentary filmmaker and former BBC producer who shot many films about the hottest points of the modern world and received four Emmy awards for his work.

Petrykivka Painting Workshop

workshop

Petrykivka Painting Workshop
with master artist Halyna Nazarenko

Wednesday, July 17, 2019, 6 – 9 p.m.
THE UKRAINIAN MUSEUM
222 East 6th Street
New York, NY 10003
212.228.0110
www.ukrainianmuseum.org

Adults and students age 12+, with or without experience in painting, are encouraged to join this fun workshop. Decorative petrykivka artwork with its glorious bursts of color are a joy to look at, and now you can learn how to create your own petrykivka masterpiece under the guidance of master artist Halyna Nazarenko.

Petrykivka decorative painting, as described on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, is an ornamental folk art rich in symbolism. Once strictly practiced as a form of applied art – traditionally, folk artists adorned hope chests, walls, home exteriors, indoor stoves, etc. – today, it has evolved into a painting style for framed artwork.

Ms. Nazarenko, who hails from Petrykivka, Ukraine, the town whence the art form originates, has been drawing since childhood. She studied in an art high school and graduated from the Myrhorod Art College. Her works have been exhibited internationally, and were included in the Ukrainian Museum's 2015 exhibition.

Fees – $25 per person, plus $10 for materials. All materials provided. Workshop fees are non-refundable.

Take your artwork home!

Pre-registration required! **Seating is limited**, and you must call the Museum (212-228-0110) in advance to reserve a spot in this workshop. VISA and Mastercard only.

image

Full Circle: Ukraine’s Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 1917–1921 commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the most dramatic and fateful periods in Ukrainian history—the struggle for independence from 1917 to 1921—and traces the creation of the modern state of Ukraine on ethnic Ukrainian territories. The exhibition showcases original artifacts generously loaned by institutions and individual collectors from Ukraine, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and the United States. The majority of the items are being exhibited for the first time. Among them are such rare items as a Zaporozhian Infantry Regiment's flag; memorabilia from key figures such as Volodymyr Vynnychenko; state papers from the UN Archives in Geneva documenting Ukraine's effort to join the League of Nations; and state seals from the period: the Ukrainian Central Council and the Great Seal of the Ukrainian National Republic.

Exhibition — Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later

image

On the morning of May 18, 1944, the Soviet government initiated a special operation in Crimea: the deportation of Crimean Tatars (Kirimli) to the Urals and Central Asia. Zarema Yaliboylu's exhibition, Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later, reveals this crime perpetrated by the Stalinist regime against the Kirimli through portraits and stories of ordinary people who survived the deportation and managed at last to return to Crimea. The people in these photos are living witnesses to Soviet crimes against humanity.
