The Kyiv National Art Gallery is proud to host the exhibition, “Igor Lobortas: A 33-Year Legacy in Jewellery Art” from May 10 to June 10, 2024. This event marks the most extensive showcase of the Lobortas Classic Jewellery House in its illustrious history. The Kyiv National Art Gallery, a beacon of Ukrainian art and culture, recently celebrated its centennial. Despite the ongoing martial law, the museum continues to promote Ukrainian
history, culture, and art both domestically and internationally through its exhibitions and educational initiatives.

This exhibition, held in the heart of Kyiv, pays tribute to Igor Lobortas, artist, ideological leader, philanthropist, Honored Worker of culture of Ukraine and member of the Board of Trustees of the museum, who reposed in the Lord in May 2023. The display features an array of artistic expressions, including sculptural compositions, gem-cutting, animalistic art, and miniature jewellery sculptures. The jewellery collection, representing different eras of craftsmanship at the House, is the highlight of the exhibition.  The exhibition also presents projects, models, engineering inventions, prototypes, sketches, and drafts that have already made their mark in history, along with new developments that are currently being implemented.

The Lobortas Classic Jewellery House, a luminary in 21st-century jewellery art, has spent decades actively promoting high jewellery art through exhibitions, representation, and educational activities worldwide. The company is renowned for creating art objects of significant historical and socio-cultural value. Its artistic jewellery masterpieces grace the displays of the world’s most prestigious museums. It took several decades for artisans of various generations at the House of Lobortas to craft a distinctive style, recognizable by its unique design motifs, technical precision, and intricate complexity.  While honouring centuries-old traditions of
jewellery art, the House of Lobortas has also established itself as a trailblazer, setting new standards in contemporary jewellery design and sculpture.

The exhibition will welcome visitors from May 10 to June 09, 2024.
