Pinchuk’s Future Generation Prize extends deadline

Artists of any nationality aged up to 35 can apply to win the $100,000 award, funded by the Ukrainian collector’s foundation

One of the largest awards in the art world, worth $100,000, has extended its application deadline until 20 May.

The Future Generation Art Prize, sponsored by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, is open to any artist aged 35 or younger of any nationality working in any medium. Applicants are asked to submit photos of their work online.

The winner, who is due to be announced on 7 December, will receive $60,000 in cash and $40,000 towards the production of new work.

The jury this year includes the New Museum’s Massimiliano Gioni, also the curator of the Venice Biennale in 2013; Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, the artistic director of this summer’s Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany; Nancy Spector, the deputy director and chief curator of the Guggenheim Foundation; and Hans Ulrich-Obrist of the Serpentine Gallery in London, among others.

The 20 shortlisted artists, to be announced in June, will have their work shown at the Pinchuk Art Centre from October to January 2013. The winning artist will also have access to Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Andreas Gursky and Takashi Murakami, who all serve as mentors for the prize.

In addition to those shortlisted, the Ukrainian artist Nikita Kadan will be in the running for the prize. He was awarded last year’s national PinchukArtCentre Prize, also funded by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.
