During the event, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about Oleksandr Roitburd's curatorial projects from a witness and participant in the events of that time.

Art critic and gardener Olena Mykhailovska will share her memories and observations through the lens of the past 30 years. Will offer to view archival video and photo documentation of projects of the mid-1990s in Odesa and will comment on them. And also debunks and, perhaps, will create new myths.

"Oddly enough, with a certain whimsicality of concepts and works, the exhibition projects of the mid-1990s in Odesa are about the reality of that time. This is the manifestation of thoughts and experiences of the perception of the new reality of that time, a kind of direct broadcast in space and time" , comments Olena Mykhaylovska.
