A number of illegal art studios existed on the Paris Commune Street (now Mykhaylivska) from 1989 to 1994. These places were the key center of the art life, because it was here, where worked many artists, who later became notable figures in Ukrainian contemporary art: Oleksander Gnylytskyi, Vasyl Tsagolov, Valeriya Troubina, Yuriy Solomko, Oleksander Klymenko, Maksim Mamsikov and many others.

The "Parcommune" was the place, where worked Oleg Golosiy. The artist died tragically at the age of 28 years, nevertheless, his art entered the history of Ukrainian art of late 20th century, and today, the works of Golosiy, are exhibited in the museums and are in great demand among the collectors.

"Parcommune. Place. Community. Phenomenon" is a product of teamwork by the PinchukArtCentre Research platform, and that is why the project is not bound by one exhibition. It will also host lectures, meetings with the artists, roundtable discussions and movie viewings. Particularly, on the 21st of October, the first event of the public program will take place - the anthropological discussion "Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll: cultural protest of the freedom of the '90th".
