Supporting humanitarian and cultural projects in Ukraine
Daria Prydybailo is an independent curator, art critic, co-founder and editor of the TransitoryWhite magazine about contemporary art from Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia, and founder of the NGO Art Matters Ukraine, which aims to integrate contemporary Ukrainian art on the international art scene.
Currently she is working on an intersectional platform for discussing decolonisation, post-neoliberalism trauma and the possibility of dispersive views on the so-called post-communist territories. At her curatorial practice she is focusing on interdisciplinary projects and translocal practices.
Her background includes experience in leading cultural institutions of Ukraine such as National culture, art and museum complex Mystetskyi Arsenal and CCA PinchukArtCentre, as well as independent curatorial practice with a strong focus on body in contemporary art, sensual turn, sound art, and in-situ projects.
She worked on large-scale international exhibitions such as International forum Art Kyiv, the First Kyiv Biennale of contemporary art ARSENALE 2012, and Ukrainian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
During 2013-2015 she curated cyberfeminist platform & collective of artists, curators and writers (wo)manorial, who contemplate the ever-changing concept of femininity. Her latest research is focused on the grey zones, psycho as a place for political and love in the context of emotional capitalism.
With donations, Daria aims to support humanitarian and cultural projects in Ukraine.
