KYIV.- The PinchukArtCentre presents “Remember Yesterday”, a group exhibition of Ukrainian artists. This exhibition is the first in a new series of shows that draw from the PinchukArtCentre’s Ukrainian art collection. They combine works from the collection, which has a main focus on the 90ties and early 2000, with new productions and or loans of recent work.

Remember Yesterday tells about the events that have impacted the development of Ukraine’s history and its society: from the Holodomor, through Perestroika, the 1990s, the Orange Revolution, the Revolution of Dignity, up until now.

Björn Geldhof, curator of the exhibition and artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre: “Remember Yesterday points to the lightning speed with which Ukraine has changed in the last three decades. Its story is complex, non-linear and contradictory. It features Ukrainians across generations and is stuck between an (unwanted) past and an uncertain future, between freedom, democratic values, open-mindedness and the need to defend against internal and external enemies, corruption and lack of transparency.”

By engaging different generations of Ukrainian artists in dialogue, the exhibition shows how artists reflected on historic processes and how their works find their new relevance through the flow of time in a different historic moment. This dialogue is between works of artists who started their practice after 2004 – Julia Beliaeva, Sasha Kurmaz, Roman Khimey and Yarema Malashchuk, Anna Zviagintseva, Lesia Khomenko – and works from the PinchukArtCentre collection, created between the late 1980s and 2004: Sergey Bratkov, Oleg Holosiy, Pavlo Makov, Oleksandr Roytburd, Oleg Tistol, Vasyl Tsagolov.

The exhibition is composed of two chapters, located on 2 and 3 floors of the art centre. The first chapter focuses the viewer on emotional sensations and psychological portraits of the society. Meanwhile, the second chapter is dedicated to the shift of the view on the past, as well as our idea of the past.

Curator: Björn Geldhof, artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre. Assistant curator: Ksenia Malykh, Manager of the Research Platform of the PinchukArtCentre. Exposition architecture and design: Dana Kosmina.
