"The project "Reforming the Space" aims at using contemporary art sculptures and installations to show the way artists see today reforms in the surrounding space," says the project curator Kateryna Ray. – It is not only about the territory of the city where they are located, but also about the metaphysical, personal space, the space between man and nature, man and the universe. The artists explore how political, geopolitical, cultural and social changes affect global dynamics."

We wish that people would speak more often about Ukrainian artists on the international arena. We want to harmonize the interaction of public space and sculpture, - says the director of the Center for Contemporary Art M17 Nataliia Shpytkovska. "That's why we are organizing a Sculpture Forum with the participation of Jaume Plensa and the leading experts in the field of sculpture and architecture, so that they would become acquainted with the contemporary Ukrainian art and our city, would be able to feel it, understand it and help us to develop it. After all, the support of intercultural dialogues and cultural diplomacy is a way to form the European society and improve the surrounding space. "
