On Saturday, February 27, we invite you to join Oksana Barshinova's online lecture "Restoration of Modernism in the 1950s-70s."
The 1950s are known in the history of world art as a time of "restoration of modernism," that is, an appeal to the modernist tendencies of the first half of the twentieth century. This process became especially important in Ukraine, where the return to its own modernist traditions of the interwar period was due not only to the softening of the political climate and the situation of "remembering" previously removed names and practices, but also to attracting new cultural centers with a strong local modernist tradition. These circumstances led to a revision of "socialist realism" in the 1950s and 1970s, which now legitimized openly modernist practices under various names: "strict style," "Transcarpathian school," "folk style," and so on.
The most radical modernism manifested itself in informal art: artists were not confined to a figurative image and not only rethought the experience of predecessors, but were sensitive to the latest world trends. Modernist tendencies manifested themselves in the works of Tatiana Yablonskaya, Viktor Zaretsky, Alla Gorskaya, Hryhoriy Gavrylenko, Oleksandr Dubovyk, Karl Zvirynsky, Pavel Bedzir, Oleg Sokolov, Lyudmila Yastreb, Valery Basants, Volodymyr Strelnikov and many others.
Lecturer: Oksana Barshinova, art critic, Deputy Director General for Exhibition and Exposition of the National Art Museum of Ukraine.
