PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, Ukraine) presents an exhibition from the 21 shortlisted artists for the 5th edition of the Future Generation Art Prize. Running from 9 February – 7 April 2019, the exhibition reveals a breadth of contemporary art practices from a judicious selection of artists and artist collectives spanning five continents. Established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009, 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the prize’s founding.
Featuring new and recent works, the exhibition explores two recurring themes through a variety of media. The first considers an ‘archeology of the future’, exploring the past and present through the eyes of tomorrow. Using cutting-edge technologies, the works question the possibilities of interpreting knowledge in today’s world.
Investigating ideas of the self, the second theme of the exhibition draws from individual socio-cultural values and traditions, whilst also exploring more poetic considerations of the psychological journey. Here, artists similarly reflect on a discrepancy between those traditions and shifting realities in a globalised world.
