A collection of international projects from Japan, France, Germany and Poland, among other countries, share the spacious pavilion with Ukrainian art from nearly 30 galleries. Entitled “Art-Kyiv Contemporary 2011,” the art fair opened on Nov. 1 and was pitched as the “broadest platform” of Ukrainian art.
However, the most progressive artists of the show are undoubtedly the Japanese. As you make your way into the “special projects” galleries (turn right at the entrance) you are overwhelmed and slightly disoriented by a flurry of sounds.
Thus begins a multi-sensory exploration. The whole section is occupied by “The Group: 1965” – a project created by six artists born on the same year sharing the vision and spirit of their time.
