YA Gallery in Lviv

We are joining the #львівзустрічає charitable cultural initiative and invite you to the "Lviv Art for (non) Lvivians meeting. Antonina Denysiuk."

At the meeting, we will jointly review and discuss a video story about Lviv artist Antonina Denysiuk. The artist views the city as an element that influenced the formation of her artistic practice. In the film, she reflects on the city labyrinths, the fluidity of lines and streets, as well as the compactness of Lviv, about the passages through the city, which make the networks and connect the city. The artist's itinerary leads through the story of important personal and artistic points in the city – about the school and grandmother's house, the apartment of Oleksandr Korolev and the space of Oleksandr Aksinin, the artistic links between Lviv and Tallinn, the appearance of the Dzyga gallery and the Vyvykh (lit. – "Dislocation") festival.

The conversation will be joined by

  • Antonina Denysiuk, an artist
  • Bohdan Shumylovych, Researcher and Head of Educational Projects at the Center for Urban History

Antonina Denysiuk

Artist, curator, author of paintings and performances. She lives and works between Lviv, Berlin and Zürich.

#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 1980's and early 1990's.
