I meet you on the meeting point and we would visit the most interesting exhibitions in Kyiv galleries on Podil. You should be prepared for a lot of different art- we would visit 4 galleries. Wear comfortable shoes - we would walk a lot! We would visit 4 different galleries (according to our route) with contemporary art - watch currently exhibitions, talk about it, communicate to the mediator - discuss the art. As an art-blogger I would tell you some interesting stories about ukrainian art. While walking we would watch the city and sightseeing on our route, talk about art etc. After all, we would finish our art-tour at the art-bar or cafe to have an opportunite for discussion and conversation.
My name is Dasha Bilenko. I'm Ukrainian art-blogger, independent art-curator, art-manager. I'm interested in art on two levels: professional and personal. I can't divide these two ideas, as I can't imagine my life without art. I’m into all tendencies of the local art scene. During last 10 years I was dedicating my life to art: as art-journalist, art-guide, art-curator and art-lover. Nowadays I'm working in the Kyiv gallery, keep an art-blog, devote all my free time to art-events, making art-tours for ukrainians and guests from abroad. I'm an insider of Kyiv art-world, so I know places, persons and opportunities of local art entertainment. I know about everything about what is going on in Kyiv art. And I would like to share all this art-energy with you!
