Please join us for an opening reception celebrating The Juncture: Ukrainian Artists in Search of Modernity and Identity. Curated by the celebrated Ukrainian and Eastern European art specialist Dr. Konstantin Akinsha, the exhibition assesses the careers and legacies of Alexander Archipenko (1887–1964), Oleksandr Bohomazov (1880–1930), and Vasyl Yermilov (1894–1968), three of Ukraine's leading Modernists. There will be refreshments, as well as remarks by Dr. Akinsha (live) and Oleksandra Matviichuk (pre-taped). 

Dr. Akinsha will also give a lecture the next day, May 24th, titled "Who Stole Ukrainian Art? A Short History of Modernism in Ukraine" in Stirn Auditorium from 2:30 to 4pm. You can find more information about the talk on the Mead's events page, or in the College calendar.
