Ukrainian Exhibition/Talk/Film on Oct 6 in Brooklyn, NY

Ukrainian Culture Is Focus of Celebration At Long Island University-Brooklyn Campus on October 6 Brooklyn, N.Y.

Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus is hosting a one-day exploration of Eastern European culture, entitled "Mapping the Eastern European Diaspora II: Ukraine," on Wednesday, October 6. The celebration includes an art exhibit, round-table and panel discussions, and a feature film. All events are free and open to the public.

Among the events are:

Two simultaneous workshops on poetry and music, from 10:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., by Virlana Tkacz and Wanda Phipps, in the Humanities Building 4th floor conference room, and by Julian Kytasty in Library Learning Center 122.

A video on the Virsky Ukrainian National Dance Company, from noon to 1 p.m., in LLC 122.

The feature film, Famine-33, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., about a Ukrainian family's struggle to survive a Government-created famine in 1933, in the Avena Lounge, Main Building.

A panel presentation exploring The politics of culture, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., by Virlana Tkacz and Wanda Phipps (literature), Julian Kytasty (music) and Natalia Kolodzei (art) in the Avena Lounge.

A gallery opening and reception, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., featuring the work of the late Ukrainian artist Petr Belenok from the Kolodzei Collection of Russian and Eastern European Art in the Resnick Gallery. Belenok was born near Chernobyl and his works, ironically, speak of pending disaster (even before the accident).

Natalia Kolodzei is a curator, art critic and author of many articles on modern and contemporary art, in both Russian and English, and the executive director of the Kolodzei Art Foundation. Louis J. Parascandola, panel moderator, is an associate professor of English at the Brooklyn Campus where he teaches British and African-American literatures.
