Wellsprings of David Burliuk’s Art: Exploring His Enduring Inspiration from Kakhovka to New York
Please join the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute for a talk by Myroslav Shkandrij exploring the artwork of David Burliuk. Mark Andryczyk (Harriman Institute) will moderate.

The art of David Burliuk, the founder of futurism in the Russian empire, went through several phases. From the moment he founded the Hylaea group near Kherson in 1903, during his travels through Siberia and Japan, and after his arrival in New York in 1922 he explored various styles. Among them were impressionism, neo-primitivism, cubo-futurism, surrealism, and ‘radiostyle.’  There were, however, some constant sources of inspiration, to which her continually returned up to his death on Long Island in 1967. These included an enthusiasm for nature, vitality, the Steppe, and the Cossack past of his ancestors. The evidence of his writings, paintings and archives provide keys to understanding puzzling aspects of his development.
