Ukrainian Institute is launching an international programme EXTER and announces the first open call for Ukrainian artists, curators and critics to participate in art residencies throughout 2019. The first round of the programme features short-term residency opportunities in eight institutions across Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the USA.
EXTER is a long-term programme of the Ukrainian Institute aimed at building sustainable partnerships with international art residencies. The programme aims to spark research, processes of exchange and facilitate the cooperation of artists, curators and other actors in the sector. It is named after Oleksandra Exter (Alexandra Exter) (1882 – 1949), a Ukrainian avant-garde artist of international prominence who spent most of her life in Kyiv.
