The exhibition "Ubiennale: Awakening," dedicated to awakening consciousness during times of war, will take place at the Museum of the History of Kyiv.

Among the exhibits, there will be installations, video art, and AR exhibits of digital and media art. Over 15 works will be presented in VR headsets. The exhibition will also feature audiovisual performances, and there will be a panel discussion with artists and curators from Ukraine, Spain, Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Italy, and Poland.

 

 

The exhibition will showcase works by over 30 Ukrainian and international artists, including Alevtina Kahidze, Oleg Kharch, Veronika Cherednichenko, Oleksandr Isaenko, Piotr Armenovskiy, Yevhen Vashchenko, and Vitaliy Shupliak.

The exhibition curator, Valeriy Korshunov, is the author of projects such as Artefact, the media art exhibition Chornobyl 33, VR exhibitions related to Chornobyl, and the presentation of over 70 works by Ukrainian artists at Burning Man. He is also the director of the VR project "Doba Persha," which was presented at the Venice Film Festival this year.

 

 

"The works presented this year not only address the pain and challenges of the present but also focus on internal awakening – spiritual strength and faith in a better future. "UBIENNALE: AWAKENINGS" aims to be a space for building optimism and hope during a great ordeal. In the unique environment of "AWAKENINGS," among works emphasizing unity and the importance of collective awakening, you will feel the spirit of community, which is a vital aspect of national self-awareness," says Valeriy Korshunov, the curator of the Ukrainian Biennale of Digital and Media Art

The first exhibition of digital and media art took place in 2021 with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, the Embassy of Spain in Ukraine, and the Spanish development agency AECID. The event brought together 50 artists from 15 countries, with 17 of them from Spain.

 

 

The exhibition will run from November 23 to December 3, operating from Wednesday to Sunday (12:00–19:00) at the Kyiv City History Museum located at 7 Bohdana Khmelnytskoho Street. Admission is free.
