Ukraine will be there at the next International Exhibition of Triennale Milano

On the occasion of the 23rd International Exhibition, which will open at the beginning of the summer, Triennale Milano intends to guarantee the presence of the Ukrainian Pavilion, together with that of many other countries which have joined the next Exhibition. To this end, Triennale, the only international cultural institution to be part of the BIE Bureau International des Expositions since 1928, intends to promote a series of initiatives (meetings, reflections, dialogues) in preparation for the Ukrainian Pavilion. These initiatives, which will be presented at a public meeting on Wednesday 9 March at the Triennale, will be attended by Ukrainian and international artists, intellectuals and scientists committed to defending the values of freedom, democracy and dialogue between peoples around the world. Among them are Ukrainian Ilya Khrzhanovsky, director, Mihail Mirakov, philosopher, Katia Kabalina, curator, Katerina Pischickova, political scientist, Anna Zafesova, journalist, Yevgenia Belorusets, artist, Konstantin Sigov, historian, Antonii Baryshevskyi, pianist, Anna Gadetska, Program Director Open Opera Ukraine, Albert Saprykin, Co-Founder & Head Kyiv Contemporary Music Days, and many others  who are being added by the hour.

Stefano Boeri, President of Triennale Milano, says: “At such a dramatic time, we believe that a cultural institution such as Triennale can act as a receiving and transmitting antenna between what is happening in Ukraine and the voices of Ukrainian culture in Italy and around the world, thus enabling the exchange of opinions and information between cultures and their international institutions that the current war is in danger of abruptly interrupting”.

Planeta Ukrain, the preparatory platform of the Ukrainian Pavilion at the next International Exhibition, will be curated by the writer Gianluigi Ricuperati with Lidiya Liberman, actress, and Anastasia Stovbyr, pianist, and will be active during the six months of the next International Exhibition at Triennale Milano.
