The Gallery RA was founded in 1993 and is successfully developing for more than 15 years. During this time, an art organization representing the works of modern Ukrainian art was created on its base; over two hundred of regular exhibitions and video shows were held. Gallery is developing in two directions: supervisory projects reflecting current processes and trends of the modern world and Ukrainian art and more traditional presentations of the artists with whom the Gallery works for years.
For their presentations, the Gallery RA involves new technologies of contemporary art, using endless possibilities offered by the new video technologies, cinema, television, internet, multimedia, etc. The Gallery developed not only as an exhibition, but it also become a creative center of communication of different audiences, professional groups, and official structures.
The Gallery holds a lot of different exhibitions. These are the photo exhibition «Susedzi», which took place under the festival “Belarusian Spring”; the photography exhibition «Made in Ukraine», showing photographs of students and graduates of Victor Maruschenko’s photography school; the exhibitions of Georgian artists Auto Mosiashvili and Michael Mikaberidze; joint exhibition of Ukrainian and Ecuadorian artists Alexei Malih and Elger Aragundi. Visitors enjoyed the photoproject «Grey» by Polish photographer Raphael Milah. This project is a story of Silesia, which during over 100 years has been the industrial part of Germany and then Poland and after the decline of the industry devastation and unemployment came there. All this is reflected in the works of Raphael Milah.
The RA Gallery also holds the beginning intensive courses of photography that will teach you to use camera skillfully consciously and with the creative approach. These courses last for 8 lessons, during which students get to know different types and genres of photographs, the technical parameters of the camera and photo materials, learn to manage the process of photographing and obtain the desired picture. In addition, every six months there are exhibitions of students’ works, and later they can participate in the Gallery projects. And the photographers who graduated the beginning course can improve their skills with the help of master-classes and photojournalism that involves the leading photographers of Kiev.
Now with the support of the Gallery RA corporate and private collections are created and increased not only in Ukraine but also abroad.
