PinchukArtCentre Presents the Exhibition “Dot, Line, Possibilities”

11 September 2020

The PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, Ukraine) presents exhibition “Dot, Line, Possibilities” that brings stories of people who, through art, learned to express themselves. This exhibition has grown out of inspiration and courage of a new group of artists who had no public voice before. People who have found friendship, adventure and much needed ways of communication.

Since 2016, the PinchukArtCentre has been inviting artists with special developmental needs (autism, Down syndrome, mental retardation) to join the “Workshop of Possibilities”. There, in collaboration with Katya Buchatska, David Chichkan, Nikita Kadan and Anna Scherbyna, a four-year-long creative journey began.

“Dot, Line, Possibilities” shares stories of those people. Some of them, several years ago, could not touch a blank sheet of paper. Then, giving it time, a dot appeared on that same sheet. And from that dot, lines, color, form and figuration grew. It grew with them, their confidence and their belief in what they can make become possible.

Curators of the exhibition: Olga Shyshlova, Head of the Educational Department of the PinchukArtCentre, and Katya Вuchatska, artist.

The exhibition is an opportunity to discover the outsider art. Unconventional artistic solutions, singularity and an entirely different perspective on ordinary things incite the viewers to re-conceptualise the commonly accepted notions of the words ‘artist’ and ‘art’.

Artists presented at the exhibition: Anastasia Averina, Heorhii Alaverdov, Yelizaveta Bukina, Katya Buchatska, Bohdan Horda, Maria Vykhrova, Mark Volkov, Olha Zholobetska, Nazar Yonenko, Nikita Kadan, Anastasia Kravchuk, Daryna Malyuk, Yevhenia Mysik, Petro Mikhaylov, Oleksii Ovdienko, Artem Oliynyk, Oleksandr Pylypenko, Kyrylo Smereka, Pavlo Khomenko, Artem Tsarenko, Varvara Shyshlova and Anna Scherbyna.

The exhibition will be open from September 11, 2020 to January 3, 2021 in the PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv, Ukraine. Opening hours: Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 9 pm. Admission is free.
