We continue to participate in the #львівзустрічає cultural initiative and invite you to the meeting "The City and Art of Yevhen Ravskyi."

At the meeting, we will jointly watch a video story about the Lviv artist, Yevhen Ravskyi. The artist shares his childhood memories of Lviv, of his life outside Lviv, of visits and eventually, the return to Lviv. Ravskyi will lead us through the important private and public spots in the city in the 1990's. We will talk about the formation of links between artistic and musical environments in Lviv, about Lyalka and Dzyga as important spots on the cultural map of the city, about the artist's workshop, artistic ideas and questions of Yevhen Ravskyi.

The conversation will be joined by

  • Vlodko Kaufman, curator of the Dzyga Gallery
  • Bohdan Shumylovych, Researcher and Head of Educational Projects at the Center for Urban History

Painter, performance artist and long-term curator of the Lyalka Cultural Center in Lviv

#львівзустрічає – is a charitable cultural initiative of the Association of Gallerists, joined by 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 provide the switch.

The video story was created within the City and Art on the Edge project of the Center for Urban History. During this project, the Center's team learned what the young artists of Lviv in the late 1980's 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.
