Last year, the Saatchi gallery mounted a show of contemporary Ukrainian art, Premonition: Ukrainian Art Now. The show was a bid to investigate how native young artists were responding to the most turbulent years anyone could remember. In times of civil unrest, art becomes a tool for dissent, and the exhibition was a fraught but sturdy call for change.
Building on the success of Premonition, the Saatchi gallery have announced UK/Raine, an exhibition of the work of thirty emerging young artists from the UK and Ukraine. An international panel of judges will select a winner from each media.
We're particularly excited about Jamie Fitzpatrick's riotous sculptures (check them out here) and we love Maria Kulikovska's fragile human figures. Check out Sasha Kurmaz's interventionalist street art, too.
A rare opportunity to get to know brilliant artists from two very different places,
