This exhibition of antiwar political cartoons includes recent works by renowned cartoonists from Ukraine and Russia created in response to the Russian aggression in Ukraine. The exhibition is organized by TMORA in collaboration and partnership with Minnesota artist Andrey Feldshteyn, who has worked in the genre of political cartoons for four decades. At the beginning of the war, Andrey approached a number of artists with an invitation to share their works for this exhibitions and they sent their amazing works to be displayed at TMORA.
Andrey writes, “Wars destroy human relationships. But political cartoonists inhabit a country of their own governed by the law of the genre. We collaborate in international projects, express our anti-war sentiment during war-time, and support colleagues who suffer persecution. From the first day of this war, I wanted to attract artists to a collaborative project exposing the aggressor, pointing to the perpetrator, and uniting artists against our common enemy, Putin’s regime waging a war of aggression in Ukraine.”
The response from the international cartoonist community was overwhelmingly positive, and now TMORA presents the 4th round of this exhibition.
Say No to War: Political Cartoons by Ukrainian and Russian Artists will continue to evolve and is on view at The Museum of Russian Art until the end of the war.
