On July 20, Nico & The Animals will take you on an incredible spiritual and musical journey. It is a blend of soul and earth in a way that has never been heard before. From hip-hop folk songs with Celtic accents to gentle songs about love, peace and empowerment. Freedom Music in time. Back to nature.

Nico’s inspiration comes from talking to himself, animals, and the true magic of nature and the elements. Written in solitude and fire. In seeking to understand the way back to our true way of being we desire to manifest the world of creativity and inner peace. This is reflected in his writing … Each song is a spell that will surely make you think about the world around you and evoke an interesting and hopeful understanding in the fabric of reality.

Admin comments:

The State Art Gallery in Sopot has been collaborating with the Lviv Art Gallery for many years. Borys Woźnicki, enabling the Sopot audience in the summer season to learn about the heritage of Polish painting, which is in the collections of one of the main museums in Ukraine. And although we do not stop working with the Lviv art gallery, the events of the war pushed us to change our perspective and adjust our exhibition goals.

Galleries, museums, cultural and art centers have temporarily stopped working, a time of uncertainty has arisen. However, art did not disappear, artists did not stop working.

The “State of Emergency” exhibition was conceived as a platform where Ukrainian artists – those who have left Ukraine in recent years and those who are still in the conflict zones – will be able to present their works, created in the immediate environment of war. . All combine artistic and reporting elements with an element of social activism.

The presented works – their themes and problems – are characteristic of the development of Ukrainian art since the beginning of the 21st century. Artists and artists more often began to create works in the context of feminism and association, political changes, post-colonial cultural concepts and imperialism, identity and collective memory, trauma, suffering, courage and endurance. All these planes are present in the Sopot exhibition; they interact, provide a new ideological context and bear witness to the recurring theme of art and its roots in everyday life.
