Open Group: Due to Circumstances - org. galeria Arsenał w Białymstoku
Open Group is one of the most interesting art collectives currently active in Ukraine. It was founded in 2012. Its members include Yuriy Biley, Anton Varga, Stanislav Turina, and Pavlo Kovach. Already after three years of joint activity, the artists highlighted their presence with a strong note, winning in 2015 the PinchukArtCentre Prize, the most important award for Ukrainian young artists. In the same year they participated in the Venice Biennale.
The exhibition at the Arsenał Gallery will include a selection of the works of the group as well as a new project made specifically for this occasion. It will be the first groups’ retrospective exhibition, summarizing the five years of their activity, as well as their first exhibition in Poland.
