Pure Art Art Ar­se­nal (vul. Lavrska 10-12, Kyiv)

The or­ga­niz­ers of this show de­cided to call “Pure Art” works that are naïve, am­a­teur or out­sider art. This type of art is dif­fer­en­ti­ated in aca­demic and tra­di­tional cir­cles by its im­me­di­acy, some­times even by its naivete. For “naïve” painters, the main thing is not the tech­niques of paint­ing or the com­mer­cial ben­e­fit of sell­ing works, but sim­ply the need to paint. Ac­cord­ing to the cu­ra­tors, the project is in­tended to ac­tu­al­ize and pop­u­lar­ize this part of the art world and to chal­lenge view­ers to dis­cuss and de­bate.
