News"Concentration of the Will" Opened at the M17 CAC

On 1 June, the M17 Contemporary Art Center officially opened the second stage of the Concentration of the Will project as part of the 15th platform of cultural initiatives "New Aspirations"


Despite the incredibly difficult weeks of the active terrorist phase of Russian aggression against the capital of Ukraine, the exhibition project opened as scheduled, on 1 June 2023, and the event was attended by about 600 guests. The opening was attended by the project curators, representatives of the organising institutions, philanthropists and art connoisseurs, artists and project participants. The Art Support Fund provided essential support for the opening of the second stage of the Concentration of the Will project at the M17 CAC.


The exhibition at the M17 Contemporary Art Center showcases the artworks by 49 artists: video art, photography, an installation of military equipment fragments, objects, graphics, painting, and sculpture. The exhibition at M17 brings together artworks that highlight various aspects of the consequences of the full-scale Russian invasion and reveals the Ukrainian vision of the will, which is the most important weapon in the liberation struggle of the Ukrainian people.
