Art is a language that knows no nationality, and GALLERY Chicago will highlight one of the visual languages that artists of Ukrainian and Puerto Rican backgrounds share: abstraction. Experience artists of two vastly different generations and ethnic heritages envelop their unique experiences within their formalism, as well as a reflection of the Ukrainian and Puerto Rican communities’ cultural legacies as neighbors with the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art and the National Museum of Puerto Rican Art & Culture.
“GALLERY Chicago” will feature work by Javier Bosques, Ihor Dmytruk, Frances Gallardo, Jacques Hnizdovsky, Wasyl Kacurovsky, Peter Kolisnyk, Ronald Kostyniuk, Lialia Kuchma, Michael D. Mandziuk, Rafael Miranda Mattei, Konstantin Milonadis, Nora Maite Nieves, Josue Pellot, Aka Pereyma, Luis Rodríguez Rosario, Zilia Sanchez, Kristine Servia, Edra Soto, Mychajlo Urban, and Omar Velazquez.
Curated by Robin Dluzen, Stanislav Grezdo and Bianca Ortiz.
