September 5, 2020 - March 28, 2021

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) presents Max Vityk’s Warriors of Light, on exhibit in the Main Gallery beginning on September 5, 2020, through March 28, 2021.

Warriors of Light is part of the figurative series of the artist Max Vityk. In this series Vityk investigates the narrative elements and figures of ancient rock engravings and mythological and folk symbols.

“The emotional vulnerability of the Warriors of Light fuels their plea for change; it is something akin to going into battle naked… a certain nakedness protected only by an unfaltering conviction of ideals. Vityk’s work feels less like a personal enterprise and more like an ode, or an act of adulation to the spirit of change — a spirit plagued by credulous hope for something better… something happier,” stated Nahla Samaha, Cairo, about the exhibit.

Through Warriors of Light, Vityk seeks to modernize the archetypal mystical material to convey current events onto the plane of the internal struggle between good and evil. The paintings explore the historical revolutionary events the artist lived through during his stay in Ukraine and Egypt between 2011 – 2015. The exhibit is comprised of 12 large acrylic paintings.

Warriors of Light is on loan from the artist, Max Vityk.

The IMAS galleries are open weekly Wednesday through Saturday with modified hours including 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday along with sensory-friendly Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and senior hour Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Currently admission is $1 for guests 4 and up, and IMAS members and children under 4 receive free admission.
