Burning Man Art 2018
Nova Ukraine, together with Consulate General of Ukraine in San Francisco, are proud to be the partners of Ukrainian Burning Man this year in helping bring one of the Ukrainian art installations “Sorry”, by Oleksiy Sai to the Burning Man.
Nova Ukraine volunteers were responsible for logistics and gathering necessary materials for the installation. This year marked an impressive shift in Ukrainian government as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has funded a portion of the installation. An additional help came from fundraising through friends and the community in Ukraine and internationally. For the first time in 27 years, the Ukrainian government has funded two installations created by Ukrainian artists that made it to the world-renowned festival, Burning Man. This is a tremendous change and a great exposure to Ukrainian art in the international arena.
The work of Alexandra Stepanenko have gotten great reviews and they hope that such support from the government will become a normal practice to allow more Ukrainian artists to show their work.
