A solo exhibit “LATE” by Ukrainian artist Mariia Proshkovska is a continuation of the long-term “Presence” project aimed at visualizing the values stereotypically imposed by society on all types of social groups. This research art-project explores gender issues with an emphasis on aspects and concerns related to women’s lives in modern society.
Through this exhibition, the artist hopes to pique the interest and capture the hearts of the viewers, so that one day they may choose to visit the beautiful place where he grew up. This exhibit showcases photos from the Southwest of America: particularly New Mexico and Arizona. To reflect on his life, journey, and culture, Mario Montoya returned to his home to capture and analyze the path on which a person can begin at the bottom in America, work at the U.S Senate, and end up being a diplomat for the United States State Department. The artist wishes to support current changemakers and inspire others to believe that Ukraine can achieve everything through its young democracy.
