On the occasion of the disaster’s 30th anniversary, the Ukrainian Institute
of Modern Art has commissioned a fine art print portfolio project and exhibition
entitled, “Chornobyl: Artists Respond.”

UIMA invited 30 Chicago artists to participate in this project, each artist
creating an edition of 40 original prints for the portfolio in remembrance
of the event. The artists, who come from different cultural backgrounds,
approached this project from unique perspectives, reflecting on their individual
experiences and knowledge of the Chornobyl disaster. The completed
prints feature a range of themes, from scenes of the Chornobyl accident
and its aftermath, to commentary on its current state, and its correlation to
other nuclear accidents. Just as varied as the artists’ points of view are the
techniques with which they chose to create their prints, from the traditional
media of screen-prints, etchings and lithographs, to more unconventional
methods incorporating natural and non-art materials.

While this portfolio is composed of a multitude of voices and perspectives,
they are all united in remembrance. Though Chornobyl was 30 years ago, it
is clear that the disaster and its memory are just as potent today.

All Works printed in 2015, on Revere Silk printmaking paper, 15 x 11 in.

A limited number of portfolios are available for purchase.
Please call UIMA for more information at 312.227.5522
