On 20 July, an exhibition, ‘UNFOLDING LANDSCAPES’, presenting major artworks by 42 Ukrainian artists, opened at the Art and History Museum Brussels, thanks to the efforts of the European External Action Service.
Initially, in January this year, the exhibition was presented at an art gallery in Denmark. But in May the exhibition could not return to war-torn Ukraine and was in danger of becoming “homeless”.
The European External Action Service “adopted” the exhibition and supported its relocation to Brussels, where it will run until 20 September – “hopefully as the first stop of a large European tour”, says EEAS.
“This exhibition offers the unique opportunity to share Ukrainian culture with the European population and to create a space with a sense of home for Ukrainians abroad and above all for Ukrainian refuge,” says the EEAS. “It will also contribute to strengthening the image of Ukraine, which recently became an EU candidate country.”
