April 22: AURORA Dallas’ Video Art Nights to showcase new Ukrainian artists

VIDEO ART NIGHTSA pop-up video art program presented every Friday night in April throughout downtown Dallas. Part of Dallas Arts Month.

Last weekend, AURORA kicked off the “Video Art Nights” five-night series with its inaugural program and was a huge success. I wanted to provide an exciting update for the Friday, April 22 program. AURORA’s “Video Art Nights” is proud to announce Vich-Na-Vich, a series that features Ukrainian artists working in video, animation and drawing. https://dallasaurora.com/Video-Art-Nights

On Friday, April 22, attendees will be able to experience Vich-Na-Vich, a series in support of Ukrainian artists. Vich-Na-Vich, literally eye to eye, or face to face, offers an intimate portrayal of Ukraine and considers the ways that artists address and record experiences of invasion and war. Honoring the resilience and persistence of artists working in this critical and transformative moment, Vich-Na-Vich examines the immediate impact as well as the humanist backstage of the war. Presented in partnership with Aurora’s “Video Arts Nights” and Dallas Art Fair, Vich-Na-Vich is organized by Lilia Kudelia and Janeil Engelstad with support from Make Art with Purpose.
