Today it is important that our cultural institutions use the opportunities provided by modern technologies and adapt to new working conditions, "said the director of the Department of Culture of the Kyiv City State Administration Yana Barinova.
The curators were Olga Vashchevska, a leading artist of the Ivan Honchar Museum, and Tetiana Poshivailo, an honored cultural worker of Ukraine, ethnographer and art critic.
During the presentation, which was broadcast online on Facebook, Petro Honchar, the ideological inspirer of the exhibition and director of the Ivan Honchar Museum, said:
