The Great Exhibition of Fine Arts was held in Lviv Palace of Arts and became a visualization of discussion about the history and culture of Donbas, complex research of the “miner’s edge”, its multi-layer, ambiguity and diversity. The exhibition brought together about 150 pieces of painting, graphics, sculpture, installation, photography and video art from museum collections, private collections and artists workshops. The curators activated the great artistic material from the classics of social realism and informal art (S. Grigoriev, V. Zaretsky, S. Parajanov, V. Horenko, G. Tyszkiewicz, B. Bauer et al.) to the works of modern artists (M. Kulykivska K. Gnylytska, A. Salmanov, R. Minin, A. Savadov, V. Maruschenko et al.).
