The existence of Ukrainian Identity and Culture beyond the country's borders we call Exterritoriality. Within the theme of Exterritoriality we started conducting conversations with individuals of Ukrainian descent residing in various corners of the world.
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.
