The Euromaidan Project: Art of the Revolution was a multi-venue exhibition created by the Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage. The exhibit featured 50 posters that originally adorned Kyiv’s Independence Square or Maidan during the early days of Ukraine’s ongoing political crisis.
These were accompanied by first-person accounts detailing the mood and aspirations of the protestors on the Maidan. Curated by Dr. Bohdan Kordan, the poster exhibit captured the energy and vitality of transformation in a country on the brink of revolution.
The Euromaidan Project was a cross-country initiative organized in association with a number of art centres, museums, and galleries that had agreed to host the exhibit. These included St. John’s Institute Culture and Arts Centre (Edmonton), Oseredok (Winnipeg), the Ukrainian Museum of Canada (Toronto), the Ukrainian Museum of Canada (Saskatoon), and the Godfrey Dean Gallery (Yorkton).
