On Saturday 12 March Ode to a Flint, a solo show by Russian born, UK based artist, Yelena Popova, was due to open in the Timothy Gurney Gallery at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery.

In response to the war in Ukraine, Norfolk Museums Service has decided not to go ahead with the exhibition in its original form. Yelena, in agreement, has withdrawn her works in solidarity with all those affected by the war.


We will instead work with the artist to use the space to reflect on the crisis in Ukraine and allow visitors to show support for those affected. Further details of this new approach will be released next week.

We will be encouraging our visitors to donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal:
