Art-Wednesday: Romana Ruban What's new?

On March 27 as a part of Art-Wednesday project artist Romana Ruban will answer the question What's new? in the format of an exhibition.

Romana comments:

How to answer this question, when it’s enough of “old”? How to answer this question when nothing interesting happens? How to answer this question when something happens that people don't speak about? How to answer this question when something happens, that is hurtfully new? And how to answer this question when people do not ask about it?


The exposition will consist of photographs, zines and graphic works selected as an answer to the question What's new? in this very difficult moment for Romana. These works are a peculiar answer, when there is no power to answer any questions.
