PinchukArtCentre starts first selection for student Summer Studies programme

On July 8 – 23, 2021, the PinchukArtCentre will hold the first Summer Studies, a programme for students of any specialities who see their future in the field of culture. The programme will enable improving knowledge on contemporary art, learning about opportunities for professional specialisation and engaging in the PinchukArtCentre’s major activities.
A group of ten persons will be formed out of the most motivated applicants for whom the involvement in the Summer Studies programme will become an important step in defining their own place in the professional environment. In order to apply, please fill in the questionnaire before July 1st, 3 p.m.: 


The participants’ work will consist in joint meetings with the PinchukArtCentre curators and researchers, artists featuring in the exhibition Remember Yesterday as well as in working on their own projects in the following directions:
1. Curating, under mentorship of Bjorn Geldhof, the PinchukArtCentre artistic director;2. Public programmes, under mentorship of Olga Shyshlova, Head of the Educational Department of the PinchukArtCentre;3. Art criticism, under mentorship of Kostiantyn Doroshenko, visiting curator at the PinchukArtCentre’s Research Platform.
Work under the curating direction implies deep discussions on the exhibition of Ukrainian artists Remember Yesterday that is currently on show at the PinchukArtCentre. During group sessions, the participants will reveal connections that arise between the works within the exhibition and develop their own narratives. The exploration of approaches to creation of exhibition projects will be taking place with involvement of curators Ksenia Malykh, Oleksandra Pogrebniak and Daria Shevtsova.
Work under the public programmes direction implies exploring ways of an institution’s communication with the audience and possibilities to boost exhibition viewing experience through offline and online programmes. The participants will analyse the PinchukArtCentre’s existing programmes, get involved in development of future projects, and examine the values that impact development of the art centre’s public events.
Work under the art criticism direction implies getting familiar with approaches to writing texts and analytical articles on contemporary art, exploring individual artistic practices and overall trends that are particular for a certain environment, as well as data collection and text editing.
The meetings will be held live thrice per week at the PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, 1/3-2 Velyka Vasylkivska /Baseyna st.).
