Monte Rosa: Memoir of an Accidental Spy

Monte Rosa: Memoir of an Accidental Spy – 25 травня.

Presentation and Book Signing with Jaroslaw Martyniuk

From the author's experience of spying from the air for US Army intelligence in the mid-sixties to his special work of coordinating undercover research with Soviets in Europe, Martyniuk recollects a most extraordinary life that begins in Ukraine during WWII and ends with his conquest of Switzerland's highest peak in mid-August 1991, the same week the Soviet Union imploded.  

The book focuses on the author’s life and intelligence work in Paris, France, focusing on his involvement in gathering information about the Soviet Union, which provided the US Government with unique insights about the life of average citizens in the Soviet Union and helped the White House to shape strategy in dealing with Soviet leaders. The narrative, told in 40 vignettes, covers a fifty-year span of the author's life from his escape from the Red Army juggernaut to his upbringing and life in Chicago, and in 1979 his fortuitous appointment as an administrator-diplomat in Paris, France.

 In addition to an autobiographical account and European travelogue (he visited every country on the European continent) the memoir contains reflections on history, politics, economics, philosophy, art and architecture. The book also explores leitmotifs such as the meaning of freedom, synchronicity, luck, survival, mountains and the impact of political correctness on free speech and liberty.

Видатний український «співочий антрополог» Орест Лютий, що у 2012 році створив культовий проект «Лагідна та сувора українізація» вперше виступить в Чикаго.

Карколомний мікс відомих радянських пісень, шансону, дворових романсів перетворюється на радикально-музичне шоу у стилі бандерівської криївки.

Гумор, іронія, тонкий сарказм та дозоване вмотивоване використання ненормативної лексики від професора антропології може спричинити легкий культурологічний шок.

Виступ відбудеться в ресторані "Tryzub", у форматі закритої вечірки.

The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art together with Razom for Ukraine, Canada-Ukraine International Assistance Fund and Kyiv Mohyla Foundation of America invite you to the Chicago premiere of the documentary film, Invisible Battalion.

Produced and filmed by women, Invisible Battalion, is the first full length Ukrainian documentary film about women’s participation in ATO military operations in Ukraine. The film follows six women as they are fighting the war against Russia and explores the challenges they’ve faced over the course of their service, from evacuating casualties, to recovering from post-traumatic stress disorder, to reintegrating into civilian life. These six heroines represent a much larger group of Ukrainian women in combatant units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, calling attention to stereotypes, gender discrimination and the combatant struggle for recognition and compensation on par with men who serve.

Come and see this Chicago premiere and meet the heroines, directors and producer of this riveting Ukrainian documentary film subtitled in English.

STEPAN PROTSIUK

STEPAN PROTSIUK

STEPAN PROTSIUK – 21 квітня, о 5:30 год. вечора.

After the collapse of the USSR Ukraine faced a decade of significant social change. Since the late 1980s, and particularly after the independence of Ukraine in 1991, with the disappearance of censorship, a whole new generation of writers had emerged, among them Stepan Protsiuk.

Due to increased freedoms and the openness of Ukrainian society to foreign influences, and exposure to literature of other countries, writers began exploring  previously forbidden topics such as the forced famine of the 1930s, sexuality, drugs, the darker sides of human life, while employing new writing styles such as postmodernism and neo avant-garde, using profanity, mixing genres, and reflecting on social problems. These elements are found in Protsiuk’s writing as he is considered one of the most controversial intellectuals of contemporary Ukraine.  A multi-award-nominated laureate, Protsiuk has authored close to 15 works of literature. His most celebrated pieces include “Romance,” “Sacrifice,” “Totem,” and his renowned collection of essays — “Tightrope Walkers.” In 2010, “The Rose of Ritual Pain” was published as one of the first attempts of serious artistic-psychological comprehension of Vasyl Stefanyk’s figure as a human being and creator. Shortly thereafter, “Under the Wings of the Great Mother” was published. The most recent of the author’s works is “The Grass Cannot Die,” whose moving themes led to the creation of a short film in Ukraine.

Martin Hurtig began his professional training at the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1952. In 1955, he studied at the Atelier 17 in Paris. In 1957, Hurtig received a Master’s degree, also from the Institute of Design in Chicago. Hurtig has presented his works extensively, with national exhibitions such as the Detroit Institute of Arts, Portland Museum, Maine, and the Honolulu Academy of Arts, Hawaii to name a few. He has also exhibited on the international stage, with shows including the Bibliotheque National, Paris, France, Osaka Triennale, Osaka, Japan. He received numerous commissions for his sculptural murals, including from the Waukegan Public Library, Waukegan, IL; the National Republic Bank, Chicago; and a stained glass window and wall mural at the Union Church of Lake Bluff, IL. He also curated a number of exhibitions, including Sight/Insightat the Suburban Fine Arts Center, Highland Park, IL, and Chicago-Paris Abstract Affinities at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, Chicago. In the late 60s and early 70s, Hurtig struggled against the dominance of “Imagism” in Chicago, forming with Larry Solomon, a group committed primarily to abstraction called “The Five,” which also included Ted Argeropolis, Larry Booth, and Vera Klement.

NOTHING IS OURS BUT TIME

NOTHING IS OURS BUT TIME – з 9 лютого до 25 березня. Відкриття 9 лютого о 6 pm.

The act of painting is an attempt to capture a moment, to preserve a gesture or an image in a suspension of pigment and oil. The artists in “Nothing is Ours But Time” use painting as a way to mark time and to contain it. Their work is anxiously focused on capturing fleeting everyday moments. Selina Trepp uses and reuses only the materials currently present in her studio to make work. Ultimately, she will leave behind little more than digital images for her descendants to contend with. Mel Cook is a modern-day Vanitas painter, reminding the viewer of his or her own mortality. Karen Azarnia’s triptych of paintings documents a handprint on a window that disappeared over the course of an afternoon drive. Time still slips through our fingers, but every moment spent in an act of creation is one that we can count as ours.
