PinchukArtCentre has announced 20 artists nominated for the 5th edition of the PinchukArtCentre Prize, a nationwide prize in contemporary art for young Ukrainian artists up to 35. The shortlist has been formed by the Selection Committee based on the results of the selection from more than 650 applications submitted by young Ukrainian artist from all regions of Ukraine and foreign countries.

Shortlist of the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018 includes: Mykhailo Alekseienko (27, Kyiv), Iuliana Golub (27, Kharkiv), Taras Kamennoi (32, Kharkiv), Mykola Karabinovych (29, Odessa), Pavlo Khailo (29, Lugansk/Kyiv), Alina Kleitman (26, Kharkiv), Vitalii Kokhan (30, Sumy/Kharkiv), Iuliia Kryvych (29, Dnipro), Sasha Kurmaz (30, Kyiv), Larion Lozovyi (29, Kyiv), Roman Mikhaylov (28, Kharkiv/Kyiv), Oleg Perkowsky (33, Kamianets-Podilskyi/Lviv), Sergii Radkevych (30, Lutsk/Lviv), Yevgen Samborsky (33, Ivano-Frankivsk/Kyiv), Dmytro Starusiev (32, Makiivka), Ivan Svitlychnyi (28, Kharkiv/Kyiv), Ekaterina Yermolaeva (32, Donetsk/Kyiv), Anna Zvyagintseva (30, Dnipro/Kyiv) and groups: Yarema Malashchuk (24, Kolomiya/Kyiv) and Roman Himey (25, Kolomiya/Kyiv), Revkovskiy and Rachinskiy (Daniil Revkovskiy,24, Kharkiv; Andrij Novikov, 27, Kharkiv). 

After considering all the applications, the Committee, was guided both by the general practice of an artist and by the works submitted by an artist which, in her/his opinion are representative. The decision was made based on consensus only. Practices that give space for new experience and artists who deviate from the “area of common knowledge” and develop their own creative models in an unobvious field were of the biggest interest to the Committee.

The Shortlist Selection Committee members are:

  • Andrij Bojarov, artist and independent curator of media art and photography projects;
  • Tatiana Kochubinska, curator of the Research Platform at the PinchukArtCentre, art historian, researcher; 
  • Ksenia Malykh, art historian, member of the PinchukArtCentre’s Research Platform team, co-founder of OK Projects, curator of the visual program of the Closer art center, member of the expert council for contemporary art at the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine; 
  • Tiberiy Szilvashi, artist, curator, lecturer, and essayist;
  • Yulia Vaganova, art manager, art historian, curator of programs and deputy director on museum and exhibition work of the Mystetskyi Arsenal.

An exhibition of the works of the twenty nominees will go on show at the PinchukArtCentre from February to May 2018.  

The winners of the Prize will be announced at the award ceremony in March 2018. A distinguished international jury will award the Main Prize of UAH 250 000 and two Special Prizes of UAH 60 000 each. In addition, the winners will each have an internship in studios of the world’s leading artists. A Public Choice winner will be determined by votes of the visitors attending the exhibition of the shortlisted artists and will be awarded UAH 25 000. 

The winner of the Main Prize will be automatically included in the shortlist of the Future Generation Art Prize 2019 – an international art prize for young artists.
