“The Fallen Sky” exhibition
The 13th of July 2022 the exhibition “The Fallen Sky” opened at Orbeliani Palace, The Georgian Presidential Residence in Tbilisi to promote and support Ukrainian culture, national identity, and female voices in art. The New Democracy Fund was honoured to support the exhibition with artpieces made by female Ukrainian artists; Lyubov Dushina, Olga Lysytska, Natalia Kosse, Iryna Vinichenko, Polina Balatsko, Eva Kozharinova, Nika Khvorostenko, and Anastasia Klymenko.
“Culture and art appeal to people – no matter their background – and tell stories or create images of our daily life. Art can create stories that can spark an inspiration to people to fight for a better world, a more just world. Protecting artists and protecting the rights of artists to work, or the possibility for artists to work is of utmost importance. A strong, vibrant, and independent cultural environment is crucial to sustaining a strong, inclusive, and democratic civil society. I hope this exhibition can serve as a small contribution to preserving Ukrainian cultural life.”, our regional director, Mads Østergaard said as he opened the exhibition together with the President of Georgia, Salome Zourabichvili, and the Charge d’Affaires of Ukraine, Andrii Kasianov.
At The New Democracy Fund, we are proud to have been a part of this exhibition and to promote the unity of art and solidarity. We want to thank the Union of Young Theatre artists, The President of Georgia and The Orbeliani Palace for setting the scene for this beautiful exhibition, and of course the artists for their beautiful work.
