We are joining the #львівзустрічає charitable cultural initiative and are inviting you to the "Lviv Art for (non) Lvivians meeting. Andrii Sahaidakovskyi."

At the meeting, we will watch a video story about the Lviv artist Andrii Sahaidakovskyi and talk about his methods, practices, and artistic space. What is Sahaidakovsky's relations with Lviv? What are his daily ritual routes in the city? How does his painting relate to European modernists and the Artes Lviv art group of the interwar period? How was the Grandfather's artistic method shaping? Is there a difference between written and printed fonts in Sahaidakovsky's works?

#львівзустрічає — a charitable cultural initiative of the Association of Gallerists with the participation of the Lviv City Council. Today, Lviv has a mission. The city became a shelter for many Ukrainians in the conditions of war. Lviv's heritage, its art and architecture, its culture and people can become a switch.

The video story was created within the project "City and Art on the Edge" of the Center for Urban History. During this project, the Center's team learned what the young artists of Lviv in the late 1980s read and watched, and where they went for experience and support. As a result, in implementing the method of constructing "man – city – stories", we wanted to identify and theorize the practices of artistic conceptualism that existed in Lviv in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
