Exhibition: The Warriors of Light / Outcrops in The Ukrainian Institute of America

Art at the Institute is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Cairo-based artist Max Vityk, opening at The Ukrainian Institute of America on May 12, 2017, continuing through April 2. Curated by Walter Hoydysh, PhD, Director of Art at the Institute, it features two major series by the artist: the monumental The Warriors of Light and Outcrops. The former group represents the artist’s innate responses to critical events surrounding the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings and 2014 Euromaidan protests and bloodshed in Kyiv, Ukraine. The latter group of paintings demonstrates an abstract yet technically calculated approach to depicting and reconstructing the geological aging and forming of the earth’s crust. This marks Mr. Vityk’s second solo exhibition with the UIA in New York. 

May 12 – June 1, 2017
Exhibition hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 12:00-6:00 PM, or by appointment.
Artist reception and book signing: Friday, May 12, 6:00 to 8:00 PM
