Join Vita Susak, Art Historian, Borys Voznytskyi Lviv National Gallery of Arts, Lviv, Ukraine, for a fascinating online talk about Alexander Archipenko's discussions on the nature of art with his brother, Eugen Archipenko.

Eugen Archipenko (1884-1959) is relatively unknown compared to his brother Alexander, yet he served as Minister for Agriculture in the Ukrainian People’s Republic (1919-1920) and was also involved in a number of initiatives intended to help sustain Ukraine's national identity. An epistolary discussion on the nature of art was undertaken by the geographically distant brothers during the 1920s, as Vita Susak will reveal in this online talk.

Vita Susak is an independent scholar and member of the Swiss Academic Society for East European Studies.

The conversation will take place online via Zoom, an email with instructions on how to join will be sent to you prior to the event.
