The Ukrainian national pavilion at the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia will be organized by the PinchukArtCentre with the support of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation. Ukraine will present a group exhibition entitled “Hope!” featuring a young generation of Ukrainian artists, including Yevgenia Belorusets, Nikita Kadan, Zhanna Kadyrova, Mykola Ridnyi & Serhiy Zhadan, Artem Volokitin, Anna Zvyagintseva and Open Group. The commissioner of the pavilion is the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine. Björn Geldhof, Deputy Artistic Director, PinchukArtCentre, is the curator of the project.

The Ukrainian national pavilion will be located at the temporal glass construction on the Riva dei Sette Martiri, on the main walking passway from Arsenale to Giardini. It stands as a model for a new, transparent Ukraine reaching out to the world. With this exhibition a young generation of artists voices hopes for Ukraine’s future through a deeply personal commitment and solidarity with those involved in the war.
