FULL CIRCLE: Ukraine's Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 1917-1921
April 7 through September 29, 2019
Full Circle: Ukraines Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 19171921 commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the most dramatic and fateful periods in Ukrainian history—the struggle for independence from 1917 to 1921—and traces the creation of the modern state of Ukraine on ethnic Ukrainian territories. The exhibition showcases original artifacts generously loaned by institutions and individual collectors from Ukraine, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and the United States. The majority of the items are being exhibited for the first time. Among them are such rare items as a Zaporozhian Infantry Regiment's flag; memorabilia from key figures such as Volodymyr Vynnychenko; state papers from the UN Archives in Geneva documenting Ukraine's effort to join the League of Nations; and state seals from the period: the Ukrainian Central Council and the Great Seal of the Ukrainian National Republic.

Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later
On the morning of May 18, 1944, the Soviet government initiated a special operation in Crimea: the deportation of Crimean Tatars (Kirimli) to the Urals and Central Asia. Zarema Yaliboylu's exhibition, Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later, reveals this crime perpetrated by the Stalinist regime against the Kirimli through portraits and stories of ordinary people who survived the deportation and managed at last to return to Crimea. The people in these photos are living witnesses to Soviet crimes against humanity.

Alexander Archipenko: Selected works
Influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Alexander Archipenko developed his own avant-garde sculptural style experimenting with convex/concave forms, volume/space transference, and inventing sculpto-painting. By 1920, Archipenko had become one of the most important sculptors of the era.
