    Futurism and After: David Burliuk, 1882-1967, includes examples of Burliuk's work during his early years in Ukraine and Russia (1907-1918), his travels through Siberia (1918-1920), his time in Japan (1920-1922), and his life in the United States, both in New York City (1922-1941) and on Long Island (1941-1967).

    The exhibition – the first major U.S. show of Burliuk's art since 1962 – was organized by the Winnipeg Art Gallery, where it was on view from April 24 to July 20 of this year. Curated by Professor Myroslav Shkandrij of the Department of German and Slavic Studies, University of Manitoba, the exhibition draws on the extensive private collection of the artist's granddaughter, Mary Clare Burliuk. At The Ukrainian Museum, the approximately seventy works displayed in Winnipeg are being supplemented by an additional forty paintings from Ms. Burliuk's collection. One of David Burliuk's early works was recently included in another Museum exhibition, Crossroads: Modernism in Ukraine, 1910-1930, which was on view in late 2006/early 2007.

    David Burliuk was born into a Cossack family near the city of Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine. He studied art both locally and abroad (in Munich, Paris, and Moscow), wrote poetry, traveled extensively, and tirelessly promoted modern art and literature. Burliuk is considered to be one of the great avant-garde artists of the early 20th century and is often referred to as "the father of Futurism" in both Russia and his native Ukraine. His works are typically filled with vitality, energy, and color. They can be found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and other major institutions around the world.

    The Winnipeg Art Gallery's development and organization of Futurism and After: David Burliuk, 1882-1967, was sponsored by the Ukrainian Canadian Foundation of Taras Shevchenko and the Carpathis Credit Union, and supported by the Wasyl Topolnicky Memorial Foundation. Research was supported by the Museums Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage. The exhibition will be on view at The Ukrainian Museum through March 1, 2009. It is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue, which will be available at the Museum gift shop.

    Museum members are invited to attend a special preview of Futurism and After: David Burliuk, 1882-1967, on Sunday afternoon, October 26. As part of the event, members will have an opportunity to learn more about the artist, his work, and his influence on the art world by joining the exhibition's curator, Professor Myroslav Shkandrij, for a gallery talk titled "Rethinking Burliuk." Professor Shkandrij's 2:00 o'clock presentation will be followed by a reception.

    The Ukrainian Museum is the largest museum in the U.S. committed to acquiring, preserving, exhibiting, and interpreting articles of artistic or historic significance to the rich cultural heritage of Ukrainians. At its founding in 1976 by the Ukrainian National Women's League of America, the Museum was hailed as one of the finest achievements of the Ukrainian American community. Today, its unparalleled array of folk art, exceptional collection of fine art, and extensive compendium of archival materials make it one of the most unique and dynamic museums in New York City, with broad appeal for diverse audiences. Each year, the Museum organizes several exhibitions, publishes accompanying bilingual catalogues, and conducts a wide range of public programming, frequently in collaboration with other museums, educational institutions, and cultural centers.
