Several artworks from our collection are featured at the new exhibition “In the Eye of the Storm: Modernism in Ukraine, 1900–1930s” which opened at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum on 29 November 2022 and will run till 30 April 2023. The exhibition presents the ground-breaking art produced in Ukraine in the first decades of the 20th century, showcasing trends that range from figurative art to futurism and constructivism. “In the Eye of the Storm: Modernism in Ukraine, 1900-1930s includes 51 works—around 75% of the show—that have been loaned from the National Art Museum of Ukraine (Namu) and the State Museum of Theater, Music and Cinema of Ukraine, both in Kyiv. To get to the show, the works were secretly packed into trucks and transported to Madrid on 15 November, which become one of the worst days of bombing in the Ukrainian capital since the beginning of the war. This is the largest-ever legal transfer of art from a war-torn country”. Read the full article on The Art Newspaper here.The exhibition has also been featured in:
