"ERGO SUM"Today, the popularity of self is huge. The phenomenon of this trendy social phenomenon prompted the Ducat gallery's idea of a most interesting exhibition. The “ERGO SUM” exposition is devoted to the picturesque self-portraits.The project brought together works of Ukrainian artists who depicted themselves on their canvases, with self-portraits for almost a 100-year period. The exhibition - 40 paintings and graphic works, among which are works of masters of classical painting, non-conformists and the "sixties", as well as our contemporaries and artists of the younger generation.The organizers emphasize that for an artist a self-portrait is not just an image of one’s own appearance, but also a process of self-knowledge, self-irony, an experiment on oneself, thinking. And the viewer will have the opportunity, so to speak, to find himself face to face with famous Ukrainian artists.
