For its fourth participation in Art Basel Miami Beach, Galerie Poggi has conceived a special project around a new body of works by the Ukrainian artist Nikita Kadan.
One of the most important figures of the Ukrainian and East-European arts scene, Nikita Kadan has not only become one of the main spokesperson for the war, but also one of the leading artists of his generation. One of the exhibiting artists of both the 56th and 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Nikita Kadan has exhibited widely (Castello di Rivoli, European Parliament, MHKA, MUMOK, etc.) and is the recipient of numerous awards.
His works are present in some of the most prestigious collections around the world, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris (FR), the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation(TBA21), the KADIST Foundation, Paris (FR), the National Art Museum, Kiev (Ukraine), the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (Germany), etc.
While being sheltered in Kiyv, Nikita Kadan has worked hand in hand in with the gallery to exceptionally produce a new body of works specifically for the fair. Drawing on the specific context of the Russian-Ukrainian war, his works become icons that stand against any type of oppression and constitute an homage to the victims of all conflicts.
The gallery is invested in standing in solidarity with Nikita Kadan and all Ukrainians to the best of its abilities. This is why 10% of all sales made during the fair will go towards supporting the Ukrainian arts scene.
