CURRENT EXHIBITION.

Photofusion presents The Thin Line, a group exhibition curated by Ukraine curator Kateryna Radchenko. The works featured were created by 16 Ukrainian artists including Yurko Dyachyshyn, Andriy Lomakin, Volodymyr Petrov, Stas Yurchenko, Mykhaylo Palinchak, Elena Subach, Serhii Nuzhnenko, Viacheslav Ratynski, Yulia Chervinska, Oleksandr Navrotskyi, Alina Smutko, Sirhiy Hudak, Shilo Group, Pavlo Dorohoi, Igor Efimov, and Kateryna Moskalyuk who present a first-hand account of the war in Ukraine, and life on the other side of it.

The project is raising much needed funds for the Ukrainian Charity Foundation The Depths of Art, which is supporting those working in art, music, theatre, literature and cultural studies. Visitors can donate within our gallery where proceeds will go directly back to the artists or can buy limited edition prints via Photofusion.

The Thin Line curated by Kateryna Radchenko will be on display within Photofusion Gallery from 6th – 24th August 2022.

Anti-Racism: A Statement from Photofusion

Photofusion stands against racism and supports Black Lives Matter. We continue to work as we have done, towards embodying the values of anti-racism with our work and organisation. The barbaric killing of George Floyd has had a significant and distressing impact on us all. We acknowledge the presence of systemic racism in society and further consider what we can do to counter racism whenever and wherever it occurs.
