“The project honors the defenders of Mariupol, who conducted a heroic defense of the city and bided their time to save Mykolaiv, Odesa, Kryvyi Rih, Zaporizhzhia, hundreds of towns and villages — millions of lives. We urged the authors to depict Mariupol as a place of extraordinary strength, because it is strength and light that lead Ukraine to victory.

As part of the project, an open call was held, as a result of which 270 posters were collected from artists from Ukraine, the USA, Japan, China, Iran, Turkey, Mexico, Bulgaria, Poland, Spain, and Norway. The jury selected 86 posters that will be included in the catalog of the 12th International Triennial “4th Block” and the collection of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine and will be presented at the exhibition in the Kyiv History Museum from February 22 to March 6, 2024.” (M86 website)

My poster, Bloom, was one of those selected by the jury for the exhibition. Thanks to several Instagram accounts (pictured above), I was able to see the exhibition virtually. View more about the exhibition on the Mariupol Reborn website.
