The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (UIMA) is pleased to present an exciting exhibit of work by two contemporary artists from Ukraine: Daria Marchenko and Daniel Green. The artists are outspoken protesters of the military aggression and tumult that have taken over the eastern region of their native Ukraine on the border with Russia. They follow the rich history of protest art and create emotionally charged works about the causes, turmoil and the consequences of war. In order to bridge the divide between the viewer and the reality of the invasion, the artists incorporate shell casings, documents and shrapnel from the frontlines of war torn eastern Ukraine.
On display through September 18th.
UIMA is located at 2320 W. Chicago Ave in Ukrainian Village neighborhood.
