On October 16, at 7 pm IZOLYATSIA opened two exhibitions — Tomorrow’s Cities Today: the Power of Urban Visions and AU pop-up exhibition — within the framework of the international residency program Architecture Ukraine, which was held in Mariupol and Kyiv from July 6 to August 28.
The project Tomorrow’s Cities Today: the Power of Urban Visions, conceived and created to support the international residency program Architecture Ukraine 2015 (Mariupol-Kyiv), explores our visual representation of city design. The exhibition deals with the visual depiction of future cities over the last 100 years, what such projects sought to communicate and why.
AU pop-up exhibition investigates the urban context of Mariupol and consists of installations, drawings, documentary videos, prototypes, models and video projections. This exhibition is the first stage of the international residency program. The Architecture Ukraine program has been designed to raise social awareness through a series of physical and digital intervention within the city or network of cities, affected by the ongoing war. Participants were asked to take a step back, gather and study data on the makeup of the urban conurbation and to investigate an aspect of social ‘fabric’ or ‘phenomena’.
Both exhibitions took place in Mariupol, 132 Budivel’nykiv Avenue.
