About The Event

“Garden of Collective Futures”, a public art project initiated by nine members of EUNIC Cluster New York, features artists from ten European countries. In the first leg, the artists will create a collaborative mural design through a series of workshops under the creative lead of New York-based, Ukrainian-born painter, muralist, street artist, and illustrator Misha Tyutyunik. In the second leg, they will bring it to a wall in New York (stay tuned for more info).

In the spirit of artistic exchange between Europe and the US, the project seeks to emphasize the importance of international cultural cooperation. The result will be the product of different artistic positions from Europe and the US coming together: both the design and the actual mural itself will be created by the group.

Meet the artists:

· Rob Anderson (Hungary)

· Riivo Kruuk (Estonia)

· David Leitner (Austria)

· Julius Ludavicius (Lithuania)

· Radu Pandele (Romania)

· Jan Deejoohcee Rosius (Flanders)

· Rosa Sarholz (Germany)

· Asia Stzencel (Poland)

· Misha Tyutyunik (Ukraine/US)

· Verka Vybiralova (Czech Republic)

In the upcoming weeks, we will introduce the artists in more detail, reveal further information about the creative process, and unveil the design! More to follow soon!

“Garden of Collective Futures” is a project led by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York for EUNIC New York, in cooperation with the following partnering institutions: Hungarian Cultural Centre (Liszt Institute), Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lithuanian Cultural Institute (Lithuanian Consulate-General in New York), Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, Delegation of Flanders to the USA, Goethe-Institut New York, Polish Cultural Institute New York, Ukrainian Institute of America, and Czech Center New York. With generous support from EUNIC Global – European Union National Institutes for Culture, Europe’s network of national cultural institutes and organizations, with 39 members from all EU Member States. 

UPDATE

We are thrilled to partner with The Standard, East Village on this project. The mural will be located on the wall outside of the hotel, along East 5th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue), New York, NY 10003, and will be unveiled on June 20th, 2024. Make sure to drop by The Standard this summer and check it out!

The Standard, East Village is located off Cooper Square in one of New York’s most vibrant, artistic neighborhoods. The hotel is cozy, charming, and eccentric in equal measure—very much in the spirit of its surroundings. In a time where the world feels increasingly divided, this artistic exchange between Europe and the US emphasizes the importance of international cultural cooperation.
