The exhibition Futuromarennia: Ukraine and Avant-Garde is a revealing insight into Ukrainian avant-garde art that aspired to modernise society. Radical dreams about the future in painting and scenography, architecture, literature, and cinema. Artworks by Oleksandra Ekster, Davyd Burliuk, and Vasyl Yermylov from the collections of museums that continue their work amidst ongoing attacks by the Russian aggressors. The exhibition creates a basis for a critical postcolonial revision of the history of both Western and Russian avant-garde, showcasing a wide range of peculiarities of the local artistic life and the affinity for international developments in the art of that time.

Art Walk at Kumu takes place on the last Sunday of every month at 3 pm.
