Mitec – an Independent Portal on Art

The Stedley Art Foundation supported the launch of Mitec – an independent platform for art discussions.

Mitec on itself:

Mitec is a platform for free speech and discussion about contemporary art,

an artist, his reality, dreams, daydreams, thoughts, and aspirations are at the very heart of Mitec,

the aim of the site is not to follow all the biggest events of an art world, but to open those crucial aspects of it that are not usually covered by the media.

Mitec invites to a productive dialogue and serious discussions, it invites all those who are ready to share their opinions and believe that profound considerations, crazy ideas, and daring plans can stimulate the development of a national art-scene.

Mitec was born on 31 January 2014 in Kyiv, but the project covers Ukraine and the whole world. The preparation for its launch started already in summer 2013.

The resource is updated on a daily basis and quite often thankfully to the materials kindly provided by its readers.

*Mitec reflects the real life of its heroes – the atmosphere, sounds, material world, speaking manner, and behaviour.
