Our Fire Is Stronger Than Your Bombs – War posters by contemporary Ukrainian Illustrators

  • This event has passed.

This exhibition was first installed at Dartmouth College from February 24 – March 31, 2023 at the one- year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in an effort to raise awareness about the war raging in the heart of Europe. The exhibition showcases some of the brilliant artworks of contemporary Ukrainian illustrators living and working in Ukraine, sometimes, with no power, water, cell signal, or Internet connection. Many of them have long been collaborating with global media, in particular, New Yorker, the Atlantic, Zeit, Adweek, and other outlets.

A poster, as a form of fine art blending imagery and text, is a convenient and laconic statement, a means of rapid, shareable response to the urgent events and personal emotions they trigger. In the context of the massive information war, illustrators have become the voices of the art community, and their activism adds tangible strength to the ‘cultural troops’ who fight propaganda every day, broadcasting facts through artistic images and defending the truth as eyewitnesses.

Co-curators Veronika Yadukha and Hanna Leliv will present a talk on Wednesday, February 21 from 12:30-1:30 pm in the Winfisky Gallery. This will be followed by a reception from 1:30-3 pm. Gallery talks will take place on from 12- 1 pm on Wednesdays, February 14, 28 and March 5.

The Winfisky Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.

This event is co-sponsored by Salem State’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (CHGS).
