Catalogue of the exhibition Futurism and After: David Burliuk 1882-1967 organized by The Winnipeg Art Gallery and presented April 24 to July 20, 2008.
The WAG exhibition, where seventy of Burliuk’s works were shown, was enhanced at The Ukrainian Museum (October 31, 2008 - March 1, 2009) with forty additional paintings that are not represented in this catalogue.
Although Burliuk is widely known as the father of Russian and Ukrainian Futurism, his career was a long one, and in later years he experimented with a number of styles. This retrospective exhibition, the first in North America since the 1960s, provides an overview of the most important periods of his life: his years in Ukraine and Russia (1907-18), his travels through Siberia (1918-20), his time in Vladivostok (1919-20) and Japan (1920-22), and his life in the United States, both in New York City (1922-41) and Hampton Bays (1941-67). Japanese modernist art history also attaches great significance to his stay in Japan.
