The discussion will be moderated by Tetyana Filevska, coordinator of IZOLYATSIA exhibition programme.

As part of the Sugar Democracy project by IZOLYATSIA Irish artists Brendan Jamison and Mark Revels have created an interactive sugar installation at the IZONE Creative Community. The project also included a series of lectures, excursions and panel discussions dealing with the history of the Teacher’s House, Kazimir Malevich’s oeuvre, and the arts patronage in Ukraine. Ukraine is a world-renowned leader in the sugar industry. Historically, the wealthy sugar magnates, like the Tereshchenko dynasty, were among the most active philanthropists engaged in charity activities, giving Ukraine numerous buildings, cultural and educational institutions, as well as art collections, now kept in national museums. Speakers will discuss the issues of philanthropy in Ukraine and its perspectives.

The event will be held at 8 Naberezhno-Luhova, Second Floor.
