Sovereignty, Money and Power: The Paper Currency of Revolutionary Ukraine, 1917-1920

January 15, 2015 to December 4, 2015

Nickle Galleries, Taylor Family Digital Library, University of Calgary, Calgary, ON, T2N 1N4

The Ukrainian Revolution of 1917-20 was distinguished by the rise and fall of successive governments; each ideologically different, each short-lived. Money, Sovereignty and Power examines the issue of national sovereignty and how it was portrayed on currency by various ideologically driven governments (republican, monarchist, socialist) in the context of revolution, war and social upheaval. Particular attention is paid to the use of symbolic imagery and other design elements in conveying the idea of sovereignty. Exhibit organized by the Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage at the University of Saskatchewan in association with the Ukrainian Museum of Canada.
