Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (UIMA)
For nearly 50 years, the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art has hosted and promoted Chicago’s emerging and established contemporary artistic voices. Established at the height of the Cold War when Soviet rule in Ukraine offered few artistic freedoms, UIMA’s founders were the first immigrant population in Chicago to create an ethnic museum space fully dedicated to contemporary art. Since UIMA’s founding, featured artists represent a wide range of nationalities as the commitment to creative freedom and expression endures. Through various exhibitions, concerts, literary events and more, UIMA strives to serve the artistic needs of the community and city, while strengthening cultural understanding and diversity.
