PinchukArtCentre announces the 6th edition of the Future Generation Art Prize – widely acknowledged as a springboard for emerging talent.
The main prize winner receives US $100,000 split between a $60,000 cash prize and a $40,000 investment in their practice. A further $20,000 is awarded as a special prize/s between up to five artists at the discretion of the jury for supporting projects that develop their artistic practice.
A highly respected selection committee appointed by a distinguished international jury reviews every application and nominates 20 artists for the shortlist. These artists will be commissioned to create new works on view in exhibitions at the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv and the Venice Biennale.
All artists aged from 18 to 35 from anywhere in the world, working in any medium are invited to apply.
A major contribution to the open participation of younger artists in the dynamic cultural development of societies in global transition, the Prize has supported the artistic development and production of new works of over 100 artists in exhibitions at the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv and the Venice Biennale. Alongside an open call, a global network of partner platforms and special correspondents work as ambassadors to encourage artists to apply for the prize.
Established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009, the Future Generation Art Prize is a biannual global contemporary art prize to discover, recognise and give long-term support to a future generation of artists.
