Kyiv History Museum opened an art project by Olga Adam "All the money in the world." This is reported by BigKiev, referring to the museum. The image of Alexander the Great was first placed on coins when a political need arose - people throughout the empire had to find out what a strong and strong-willed ruler looked like. That is, money, in addition to economic, also played the role of political PR. Olga Adam adds pop art elements to portraits of rulers, turning them into works of art.
“How do images on money affect the world? How do they evolve and what role do they play? And why now, in the era of digital media, when images have disappeared, money has not lost its energy properties and power over people, although image as art has not ceased to be an international language of communication and still has influence? The artist Olga Adam is trying to find answers to all these questions, stylizing and interpreting images on banknotes and coins of different countries, ”the organizers note.
Date: until December 9.
Address: Kyiv History Museum, Khmelnytskoho str., 7, Kyiv.
