A Space of One's Own
is the 6th
exhibition held within the framework of the PinchukArtCentre Research Platform. Its title references Virginia Woolf's classic essay A Room of One's Own
(1929), in which the writer challenged the stereotypical understanding of a woman artist's position and place in the "men's" world. By engaging with this title, the exhibition raises the question of women's "space" in contemporary Ukrainian society. The exhibition is comprised of roughly three parts focusing on different interpretations of the notion of space: as enforced and hidden, as political and manifested, and as bodily and sensual. These "spaces" are constructed around a dialogue between the works of contemporary artists and historical artworks (propaganda posters of the 1920s-30s, Soviet monumental art, the so-called folk art, etc.) This marks the first time when PinchukArtCentre invited artists to commission new works for a research exhibition, addressing or rethinking the issues raised in the show. Please note that the application deadline is 23:59, October 28, 2018.
On October 29 you will receive either a confirmation or rejection of the application sent to your e-mail address.
