MARIA PRYMACHENKO: GLORY TO UKRAINE
This publication includes more than 100 original works of Maria Prymachenko from the collection of the National Museum of the Ukrainian Folk Decorative Art (Kyiv), Ponomarchuk Family Collection(Kyiv), as well as private belongings of the artist – an apron, a women's shirt, a panel embroidered by Prymachenko and the scissors with which she worked, provided by the Maria Prymachenko Family Foundation. The texts were created by Peter Doroshenko (foreword), the introductory article by Oksana Semenik, in which the researcher examines the multifaceted work of Maria Prymachenko from folklore to her universe, from irony over the Soviet system to the Chornobyl disaster, from ceramics to embroidered pictures. About the unique world of Maria, as well as her influence on the family and, more broadly – the artistic context in Ukraine, the current world (exhibitions in Luxembourg, Dresden, paintings at the 2022 Venice Biennale, in the Saatchi Gallery in London, the Swiss open art museum, etc.) great-granddaughter Anastasiia Prymachenko talks about the habits and everyday life of her great-grandmother in a conversation with Peter Doroshenko, the director of The Ukrainian Museum in New York and the curator of the exhibition of the same name, which will last in New York City from October 7, 2023 to April 7, 2024.
This is Maria Prymachenko's first exhibition in North America and the first full-fledged bilingual catalog of the exhibition, which aims to demonstrate to an international audience the original work of one of the most outstanding artists of Ukraine.
Maria Prymachenko has always been our strength and our Ukrainian glory. Our great Maria. In these years of war, her name and works gained world recognition, and her exhibitions sound like an important symbol, like a greeting from the heart: Glory to Ukraine!
