Founded in 1971 as a cultural refuge for displaced Ukrainian artists, the UIMA has changed as much as its surrounding neighborhood. “Modern art has no nationality,” says the museum’s curator, Stanislav Grezdo, who is Slovakian. Behind the façade of the building by architect Stanley Tigerman, half the space is dedicated to the bold geometric shapes favored by many of Ukraine’s painters and sculptors; the other half houses retrospectives of Chicago artists in their 80s and 90s. The current exhibit, GlitChicago, rounds up local electronic art and runs through September 28.
