Curator and collector Pavlo Gudimov created an original space in the center of Lviv where you can enjoy art in close connection with books, discussions, music and events.
The art center is placed on the second floor of a luxurious secession building designed by architect Wladyslaw Sadlowski in 1905-1906. This special place is marked by expressive compositions with women’s heads (mascarons) between chestnut branches on the facade and the authentic blue wrought-iron gate. The exhibition halls represent the renovated historic interiors, and the collection of stoves and furniture give us the spirit of Lviv in the early 20th century.
In the dynamic rhythm of modern exhibition projects, you will learn more about Ukrainian painting, graphics, sculpture, glass, and ceramics. From recognized classics, such as Mykola Malyshko, Ihor Yanovych, and Karlo Zvirynsky, to artists of the “new” naive, from abstraction to figurative, from story to story – by discovering art, you always discover something in yourself.
The first art center Ya Gallery was opened in 2007 in Kyiv. In September 2019, Ya Gallery art center was opened in Lviv too.
