Sunday Soup: Chisinau will be preceded by a public presentation by Roman PETRUNIAK from InCUBATE Chicago entitled Creative Strategies Between Art & The Everyday.

Friday, March 26th, 6 pm, location: ARThotel, str. Gh. Asachi 53/1, lit. “A”, Chisinau


Roman Petruniak is an art historian, curator, critic and artist from Chicago, IL. Between 2007 and 2009, he was the curator of exhibitions at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art ( In 2007 he founded InCUBATE (, a curatorial collective, artist residency program and experimental research institute seeking to develop new ways of thinking about financial support for creative activities. Currently he is living in Kyiv on a Fulbright Scholarship to study the infrastructural support of socially progressive contemporary art in Ukraine.

The work of Petruniak often complicates the traditional definitions of art, arts administration, and everyday life. His research asks the questions: What new possibilities can arise when these boundaries are blurred? What new types of creative strategies may be developed in the space between art and the everyday?

In the presentation Roman will introduce his work with InCUBATE, as well as give some information about his current work as Fulbright scholar in Kyiv. He will especially describe a new program in Kiev called “Sunday Borsch” (, a bi-monthly community meal and alternative granting program designed as a DIY method of providing financial support to creative projects.
