This issue of Harvard Ukrainian Studies features Ukrainian modernism in visual art and literature. Articles by Myroslava M. Mudrak, Heorhii Kovalenko, Jean-Claude Marcadé, Ol´ha Lahutenko, Vita Susak, and George G. Grabowicz cover a range of key moments in the history of Ukrainian modernism: episodes of symbolism in modern Ukrainian art that also touch upon the Black Sea or “Hylean” futurism championed by the Burliuk brothers; constructivism in Ukrainian theater design; artistic life in Kyiv at the turn of the twentieth century; the oeuvre of Vasyl´ Iermilov in the context of Ukrainian and European art; and a reading of Pavlo Tychyna's works through the lens of modernism. The articles are prefaced by an introduction by George G. Grabowicz and accompanied by numerous rare photographs and illustrations. This issue also includes a number of reviews of recent publications.
