Olesya Dzhurayeva – The Boundless Platform – Unfolding Print #2
As a museum we believe that we have a role to play in how we respond and lift artists in current crisis and social issues in the society. We have seen how different institutions have mobilized to stand with artists and institutions in Ukraine. We wanted to use the digital Boundless Platform as an instant communication channel where the artists can use the space.
We invited the Ukrainian artist and printmaker Olesya Dzhurayeva for a digital take over in April 2022. For a few days you could follow her current artistic processes and how she continues to work as an artist and printmaker today in Ukraine based on the current situation.
