Cambridge Ukrainian Studies Exhibitions

Cambridge Ukrainian Studies regularly organises prominent exhibitions of art and artifacts from and about Ukraine as well as performances of Ukrainian cultural material.

Exhibition highlights include The 1932-33 Diaries of Gareth Jones, which garnered wide international recognition, as well as Verse in Vision: The Art of Taras Shevchenko and The Art of Feodosii Humeniuk
