On May 7, the second Kyiv Art Week was finished. This year, 23 galleries from different countries joined in, including Germany, Georgia, Poland and Brazil. Besides, Kyiv Art Week presented a unique project Museum of Private Collections: the visitors could see works by great classics of the 20th century (David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Helmut Newton, and others).

Zenko Gallery, a commercial branch of Zenko Foundation, participates in Kyiv week of contemporary art for the second time. This year the gallery presented works by such well-known Ukrainian authors as Arsen Savadov, Viktor Sidorenko, Nazar Bilyk, Aleksey Say, Artyom Volokitin, and Françoise Oz. All of them spurred considerable interest among Kyiv Art Week visitors, and some objects were bought by Ukrainian collectors. This is how a work by a young Odessa artist Françoise Oz from First Love cycle was sold along with her designer jewelry (rings).
