Doors. Through the Horrors of War.

January 17 - February 1


Presented by Museums of Mississauga and the Small Arms Inspection Building, this interactive exhibition curated by Canadian/Ukrainian artist, Ruslan Kurtveliiev illustrates the horrors of war in Ukraine using doors imported from urban battlefields.


Putin returned the war to Europe. This war with Ukraine is a war with Europe, it’s a war with the whole democratic world.

On February 24, 2022, the war knocked on the door of every Ukrainian. The “Doors” art installation will show and tell the stories of millions of Ukrainian men, women, and children who were forced to cross the doors of their homes to escape the war and terror of Russian troops. Many of them died without being able to get out…

We draw a parallel with lives as a doors. Because doors, like people, have their own story. We will take you through the doors of Ukrainian homes. To show you… What is life? What is death? What is fortitude? What is courage? And what is the price of freedom…

Brought to you by The Bloor West Village Toronto Ukrainian Festival.
