Natasha Chychasova

Natasha Chychasova is an independent curator, cultural manager, and researcher who works mainly in the field of contemporary art with the themes of historical memory, the internal dynamics of artistic communities, institutional critique, and art education. In 2018, she graduated from the master’s program in Art History at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. As a curator, she works with topics including rethinking the Soviet legacy (the show City Without An Appointment at ArtSvit Gallery, Dnipro), personal narratives (the project Suitcases Of Crimean Human Rights Defenders), and the problems of local communities (the project Finally, We Are Here on Ukrainian migrant workers at Miejski Ośrodek Sztuki, Gorzów Wielkopolski, Poland). Currently, together with Anastasia Tsissar, she is working on a project as part of the Insha Osvita Living History Studios program, drawing on interviews with Kharkiv artists to prepare a publication preserving the memory of the old downtown studios that historically anchored the city’s art scene.
