PinchukArtCentre (Kiev, Ukraine) announces the 6th edition of the Future Generation Art Prize, with the launch of the application process on February 25, 2020. This coincides with their exhibition of Emilija Škarnulytė (Lithuania), the Main Prize Winner of the 6th Future Generation Art Prize (until May 2020).

Entries can be submitted online from February 25 until May 20 at futuregenerationartprize.org

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. All artists aged 35 or younger from anywhere in the world, working in any medium are invited to apply.

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 Kiev and the Venice Biennale.

The main prize winner receives USD 100,000 split between a USD 60,000 cash prize and a USD 40,000 investment in their practice. A further USD 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 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 Kiev 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. 

The Future Generation Art Prize is widely acknowledged as a springboard for emerging talent. Lynette Yiadom Boakye won the Prize in 2012, before going on to be shortlisted for the Turner Prize and a highly successful solo show at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 2015. The winner of the first edition of the Prize, Cinthia Marcelle, represented Brazil at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017. Previous main prize winners also include Dineo Seshee Bopape, winning in 2017, who represented South Africa at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019. See past winners of the prize here.

Jury
A distinguished international jury determines the main prize and special prizes winners at their meeting in Kyiv during the Future Generation Art Prize exhibition at the PinchukArtCentre. They award the prizes at the Future Generation Art Prize 2021 Award Ceremony in March 2021.

Selection Committee
