This gallery presents a selection of works made over the course of the last century by artists born in present-day Ukraine. Some spent their formative years in the city of Kyiv, while others ventured farther afield—to Moscow, Berlin, or Paris—joining the most audacious avant-gardes of their time. A number of artists, many of Jewish descent, found safe haven from persecution in New York City. The works on view, executed in various mediums, reflect a wide range of approaches: from abstraction to representation, the mechanical to the handmade, the everyday to the mystical. We have brought them together at this time as a statement of solidarity with, and in tribute to, the people of Ukraine.
