Established by the PinchukArtCentre in 2009, the PinchukArtCentre Prize is a biannual nationwide contemporary art prize to Ukrainian artists aged 35 or younger. This is the first private art prize in Ukraine to discover, recognize and give long-term support to a new generation of emerging Ukrainian artists.

By setting up the Prize, the PinchukArtCentre strives to raise interest in contemporary art among the Ukrainians and to form, by providing support for creation of new art works, a critical mass of new generation artists who would be successful on both national and international art scenes.

was founded in September 2006 by businessman and philanthropist Victor Pinchuk. It is one of the largest and most dynamic private contemporary art centres in Central and Eastern Europe. With over 3 million visitors, the PinchukArtCentre has become an international hub for contemporary art, developing the Ukrainian art scene while generating critical public discourse for society as a whole.

For 15 years, the PinchukArtCentre has provided free access to new ideas, perceptions and emotions. Its exhibition program investigates national identity in the context of international challenges. It engages the public in a dynamic dialogue through a full range of educational and discursive events.

In 2016, the PinchukArtCentre launched Research Platform as a pioneering project that aims to generate a living archive of Ukrainian art from the early 1980s through to the present. The research is regularly shared with the public through exhibitions, publications, and discussions. 

Simultaneously, the PinchukArtCentre invests in the next generation through the Future Generation Art Prize and the PinchukArtCentre Prize, awards for young contemporary artists aged 35 or younger. These prizes have made the institution a leading centre for the best emerging artists worldwide while empowering a new generation in Ukraine.

The PinchukArtCentre is located in Kyiv’s historic architectural complex in the Besarabka area, which underwent a major renovation in the beginning of the 21st century. The interior architecture for the centre was developed by the French architect Philippe Chiambaretta. Currently, the PinchukArtCentre occupies six floors with exhibition spaces on four floors, library, education room, book store, video-lounge and café. The total exhibition space amounts to more than 3000 sq. meters.
