Ukraine’s destiny has shaped a special nation – and a special female character that has been hardened over the centuries. In 2022, most Ukrainian women artists experienced the hardships of war. But despite this, they were able to turn their pain and desire for victory into works of art. It is as if they have opened another front, a creative one, and are the de facto ambassadors of Ukraine to the world.

G.ART Gallery took great responsibility in inviting female artists and selecting works for this project. More than 50 works in various techniques will be presented – this is without doubt an expressive part of contemporary Ukrainian women’s art and at the same time a collective creative portrait of a Ukrainian woman filled with creative power, warmth, and love, which is stronger than steel.

The exhibition is complemented by a beautiful catalog in which each of the participants recounts what her year 2022 was like, and what she had to endure after the first Russian missiles fell on Ukraine. The individual women’s stories make the artworks even more expressive, beauty mixed with sadness, and deep meanings appear in each painting: flowers turn into flames, Ukrainian fields into a symbol of fertility and birth, cities with dark streets into a symbol of resistance.

The aim of the project “Hardened. The Ukrainian Phenomenon” is not only to present Ukrainian artists, but also to support Ukrainian defenders. 30% of the sales proceeds from many of the
works by G.ART Gallery will donate to the Grazhdanin Charity Foundation for prosthetics for the Ukrainian military.

The exhibition takes place within the project «Berlintegrate – Ukrainian Art Meets Berlin», initiated by the district Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf supported by Mayor Kirstin Bauch, the Foundation AusserGewöhnlich Berlin (chairman and founder Alexander S. Wolf), the G.ART Gallery for Eastern European Art and the Transiträume. Berlintegrate is a networking course for young Ukrainians who connect their future with Berlin. The course aims to learn how to build networks in the city and participate in the sustainable development of Berlin.

Exhibition runs 21st of March – 29th of April, 10. a.m. – 6 p.m
