Serhiy Parajanov was born on January 9, 1924, in Tbilisi, of Armenian ancestry. His connection to Ukraine was not only artistic but also personal.
We prepared three notable Serhiy Parajanov quotes about Ukraine and three works that he created while facing imprisonment by Soviet authority.
During our recent trip to New York City, we visited the Brooklyn Museum, The MET, and MoMA. In these museums, we explored the work of Ukrainian artists who faced a complex history, often being mistaken as russian due to the appropriation of Ukrainian culture. This experience inspired us to create the “Ukrainian Art. New York” guide.
This guide showcases the art of Ukrainian artists, including Malevich, Archipenko, Exter, Delaunay-Terk, Ripyn, Orlova, Hayk and Baranoff-Rossine.
It’s a tribute to their contributions and their impact on the art world and Ukrainian heritage.
