Kim? Contemporary Art Center
ART PORTFOLIO AGAINST FORCE

KIM? & ARTISTS FOR UKRAINE
 
On 24 February 2022 people in several Ukrainian cities woke up at 5 am to the sound of explosions. President Putin had ordered Russian troops to invade Ukraine. All of us at Kim? and those closely affiliated, we all stand for Ukraine. During the times Latvia faced the confrontations by Soviet OMON forces in January 1991, the Kim? team members were under the age of 10. And 1991 is the year Latvia and Ukraine became independent republics, splitting away from the Soviet Union. We could not have imagined the horror Ukraine and its people are facing now, in 2022. Already for a week the defence forces of Ukraine are fighting to prevent the attempted occupation of their country. Today, on 3 March 2022, a full week into this war we are still struggling to overcome the shock; however, we cannot continue going on with work-as-usual. By consolidating what is at our disposal – ART -, coupled with a generous support from our artist friends – we have created an impromptu art work portfolio available in exchange for donations.
 
ALL PROCEEDS FROM ARTWORK PURCHASES WILL GO TO SUPPORT UKRAINE. ASSOCIATION KIM? WILL TRANSFER DONATIONS FROM INDIVIDUALS TO AN ACCOUNT CREATED UNDER ZIEDOT.LV FOR THE SUPPORT OF UKRAINIAN PEOPLE!
