‘I can’t take up a weapon, so I create’: how Ukraine’s artists are taking on Putin’s Russia

When I meet him, artist Oleksiy Sai, along with his wife and son, have slept the night in their studio, a warren of rooms tucked behind an unassuming courtyard in central Kyiv. It’s on the ground floor, and with good walls, so they reckon it’s reasonably safe from Russian rockets. Safer, that is, than their apartment: the previous day they were woken by the juddering scream-boom of cruise missile strikes, one cratering a children’s playground a block from their flat. Somehow, their windows survived, though the glass was blown out of most of the nearby buildings. Now, the whole family is busy making work: his son Vasyl is at a screen editing videos; his wife, Svitlana Ratoshnyuk, is making folksy textiles embroidered with “Fuck Putin” in Ukrainian.

The Carnegie International Continues at CMOA (Mon., 11/28/22)

The latest edition of one of the world’s premier art shows, the 2022 Carnegie International, is open here in Pittsburgh. This huge exhibition of works by artists from around the world has been a global tradition for more than a century. It is the second-oldest recurring show of its kind—the first International was staged in 1896, under the auspices of Andrew Carnegie himself, a year after the first Venice Biennale in Italy. The current International is the 58th, having evolved to a once-every-four-years schedule, and is staggering in scope. It includes pieces and performances by 79 individual artists or groups. There are contributors from Indonesia and from Braddock, the latter being Braddock native and photographer/activist LaToya Ruby Frazier. Breaking somewhat from the “contemporary” label, this year’s show also features works by renowned modern artists now deceased, such as Kate Millett and Claes Oldenburg. You can expect to see art in just about all media imaginable. The 58th Carnegie International bears the thematic title Is it morning for you yet? Learn the origin of this curious phrase on the show’s main web page … where you can click the “Opening Weekend” tab for special opening events and performances … and should definitely use the “Visit” tab up top to reserve timed entry tickets!
