This stunning exhibition invites visitors to explore the remarkable modernist art scene in Ukraine during a time of dramatic change.

From 1900 to the 1930s, Ukraine experienced incredible upheaval—from the fall of empires and the First World War to the struggle for independence and the creation of Soviet Ukraine. Yet, amid these challenges, Ukrainian artists pushed the boundaries of creativity and innovation. This era saw a vibrant explosion of art, literature, and theatre.

This exhibition is the most extensive UK display ever dedicated to Ukrainian modern art from this period. Visitors can enjoy 65 diverse works, including oil paintings, sketches, collages, and theatre designs. Many of these pieces are on loan from the National Art Museum of Ukraine and the Museum of Theatre, Music, and Cinema of Ukraine in Kyiv.

In the Eye of the Storm features celebrated artists such as Kazymyr Malevych, Sonia Delaunay, Alexandra Exter, and El Lissitzky, alongside lesser-known but influential figures like Oleksandr Bohomazov and Mykhailo Boichuk. Each artist played a significant role in shaping Ukraine’s art and cultural landscape during this fascinating time.

Book your tickets and explore this extraordinary chapter in art history and see how Ukrainian artists navigated a period of great change with their innovative and inspiring works.
