Heorhii Narbut is the most important Ukrainian modernist graphic designer of the twentieth century. UIMA in partnership with Rodovid Press is proud to host an event, funded by the Ukrainian Culture Foundation of Kyiv, honoring Narbut’s enduring artistic legacy. The event will consist of a screening of the film Brendari [Brand Makers] directed by Nadia Parfan and the presentation of a newly published book by Professor Myroslava M. Mudrak, entitled, The Imaginative World of Heorhii Narbut and the Making of a Ukrainian Brand. Both the film and the presentation will analyze Narbut’s graphic designs as they impacted Ukraine’s national and cultural identities and also defined the branding of a newly independent Ukraine in 1918 and now in 2020. The objective is to explore Narbut’s work, his creative and cultural legacy, how it impacts contemporary Ukraine’s brand and affects the world’s perception of Ukraine.
Join us for this special event at UIMA on Saturday, November 7, 2020 with an introduction about the collaborative project by Rodovid Press publisher and UIMA board member Lidia Lykhach along with guest speaker Myroslava Mudrak, curator and author of “The Imaginative World of Heorhii Narbut and the Making of a Ukrainian Brand.” An English version of her anthology will be distributed to those attending the event. Priority will be based on order of registration through Eventbrite until supplies last.
With adhering to Covid guidelines and social distancing, UIMA allows for a limited capacity. Masks must be worn to attend the opening. There will be two sessions of the presentation at 2:00 and 4:00 pm. Pre-registration is required.
