Soon, the National Museum in Lviv will send 89 works by Maria Prymachenko, one of the key figures in 20th-century Ukrainian art, to Warsaw. The paintings will be exhibited at the Museum on the Vistula from March 22 to June 30, marking the last exhibition at the current location before the museum moves to its new headquarters on Defilad Square.

Prymachenko's oeuvre is a captivating surrealist bestiary, a world of visual fairy tales where humans, animals, and plants intertwine. The exhibition "Tygrys w ogrodzie. Sztuka Marii Prymaczenko" (Tiger in the Garden. The Art of Maria Prymachenko) will be composed of a selection of works from the period 1982–1994, originating from the private collection of Eduard Dymshyts, a collector and art historian fascinated by the artist's work.

Interest in Prymachenko's art goes beyond the ongoing war in Ukraine. It serves as a significant example of how art institutions are incorporating the work of artists previously labeled as folk or outsider into their mainstream activities. The accompanying program of the exhibition, conducted in collaboration with the Solidarity Cultural Center "SÅ‚onecznik" (Sunflower), will play an important role. The exhibition space will host debates, conversations, and seminars that will provide a new, contemporary context for Maria Prymachenko's art.

The exhibition is developed in collaboration with the Charitable Foundation "Creative Heritage of Maria Prymachenko's Family."
