Lviv. The Center Porokhova Vezha
Metropolis. Past Utopias of Future
23.10.2018 – 20.01.2019
The project Metropolis. Past Utopias of Future, curated by Pavlo Gudimov, will be represented at the recently established Center Porokhova Vezha (Powdered Tower). The main subject of the exhibition will be views of the past visionaries on future. The postwar projects of Khreshchatyk street and Kyiv reconstructions, displayed in the dialogue with the engravings of Giovanni Battista Piranesi, will make up the separate section of the exposition. The exhibition had been already presented at Book Arsenal 2018 in Kyiv where it has become the object of the public interest. Now the project team has the intention to share the ideas of the past visionaries in Lviv. The artworks, presented within the exhibition, embody the views of the artists in the fields of architecture, inventions, film and illustrations.
