On March 29, 2018, at 7 PM, IZOLYATSIA presents the exhibition Where Do We Go From Here? as a part of the Visions and Reflections: Our Shared Environment project created to raise awareness around environmental protection.
The exhibition title has a double meaning. On the one hand, it implies a rhetorical question about humanity's strive for protecting itself which often abuses common sense. On the other, it provokes a search for ways of solving the existing problem which can turn out to be both positive and negative.
The project will also include a workshop for teachers, puppet theatre performances, and a master class for Ukrainian artists.
March 20-30 – Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University
