The Time Has Come: Group exhibition of Ukrainian contemporary art

24 February - 24 March 2023

“Let's to our home return and rest...

A happy home, if you but knew!...”

Surely the Time has come, Taras Shevchenko

On February 23, on the eve of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and in association with the panel discussion One Year into the Full-Scale Invasion: Europe’s Role in Securing Ukraine’s Victory, the Open Society Foundations and the ArtEast Gallery present the opening of the exhibition of contemporary Ukrainian art.


The title "The Time Has Come" references Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko. The exhibition demonstrates the persistence of creative energy despite the harshness of war. Contemporary Ukrainian art is a manifestation of the unalterable ingenuity of its artists and their deep desire for freedom.
