Open lectern 2016


Open Lectern is a creative laboratory for exchanging ideas, a local platform for the dialogue between artists and public in the form of a multi-aspect communication: public lectures and presentations.

Being aware of the fact that there is no modern art education in Ivano-Frankivsk, we are encouraged to create diverse events related to contemporary art and visual art history to provide all-round development of the city residents and greater understanding of art-related processes.

Our events mostly follow a free dialogue format, as it helps listeners to find answers to the questions they are interested in.

During 2016, 9 similar events took place:

  1. Melancholia of Microutopia, lecture on the 20th-century art, lecturer — Oleksandr Sushynskyi

  7. Public meeting with Polish artist Sławomir ZBIOK Czajkowski
