The BURSA gallery is a multidisciplinary project dedicated to the organization and development of initiatives in the field of modern culture and art. Its sphere of interest is understanding of the new visuality, broadening the boundaries of contemporary art and performative practices, working with new media, and an experiment. The goal of the project is to become a meeting point for the new emerging generation of the Ukrainian artists and the modern spectator. Our mission is to create favorable conditions for the development of a local creative scene and the introduction of Ukrainian cultural context to the international one, and vice versa.
In Bursa - art happens not only within the gallery walls; it spreads and conquers "Beliy Shum" cafe and bar, a conference hall and a library – all the way to the rooftop bar "1818".
Bursa gallery is a research center. A new exhibition is organized every three months under a guidance of a new curator. The gallery arranges the whole process of creation, providing materials and financial support for young artists. Starting 2019, Bursa will host an art residency for multidisciplinary creators from Ukraine and other countries. It is essential for us to keep our atmosphere independent from the influence of the art market. For this reason, Bursa gallery is financed solely through the revenue coming from Bursa hotel operations.
Bursa gallery is an educational space. The gallery hosts lectures, workshops, film screenings and other cultural activities. We are eager to establish creative connections with local residents, art groups and social initiatives, especially Podol-based ones. Bursa gallery is open to any kind of collaboration on a basis of mutual respect and love for diversity.
