    New York City, April 28 - The next two days are the last chance for visitors to catch an extraordinary exhibition in New York City. Rarely are new artists and new works discovered from an era gone by. Yet Crossroads: Modernism in Ukraine, 1910-1930, which closes this Sunday, April 29, includes the works of two surprising talents who were virtually unknown until recently. The more than 70 objects by 25 artists on display in this exhibition have never been shown in this country before.

    Suppressed for decades by the Soviet government or simply destroyed, the works of these artists, who were repressed and in some cases executed for not following the dictated style of social realism, are only now surfacing in the western art world. The Ukrainian avant-garde, which was largely considered inseparable from Russian modernism, in fact proves to have an identity of its own that can be traced to an academy in Ukraine's capital, Kyiv, and to other educational centers and artistic exchanges that took place on Ukrainian territory.

    The canvases of Anatol Petrytskyi (1895-1964) and Vsevolod Maksymovych (1894-1914) are a feast for the eyes: the former - a prolific and highly accomplished artist; the latter - a talent whose tragically abbreviated life cut short the promise of an artistic genius.

    Other, better known artists such as David Burliuk, Kazimir Malevich, Alexander Archipenko, Alexandra Exter, Viktor Palmov - to name just a few - are also represented in this collection of the Ukrainian avant-garde from the early 20th century.

    See Crossroads: Modernism in Ukraine, 1910-1930 on April 28 and 29 at The Ukrainian Museum, 222 East 6th St. (between Second and Third Avenues). On Saturday, the Museum is presenting lectures and concerts in conjuction with the exhibition - see the panel insert for details.
