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