Transfer: solo exhibition by Nicolas Grospierre
18 September 2012 - 23 September 2012

18–23 September 2012
Open Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 until 21:00.
Admission is Free.

The PinchukArtCentre presents “The Bank” by Nicolas Grospierre - the fourth one-week solo exhibition in the context of Transfer. Transfer is an exchange programme to promote and support new generation of Ukrainian artists abroad and to offer a dynamic view on young Polish art in Ukraine. This is a common project of the PinchukArtCentre and the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle (Warsaw, Poland).

Nicolas Grospierre’s photography rests on the principles of archiving and documenting with a particular focus on abandoned modernist architecture of post-Soviet countries. Once constructed with a great deal of ambition and affirmation, these buildings are captured by the artist as ghostly monuments of a failed utopia.

At the PinchukArtCentre Grospierre shows his recent installation “The Bank”. The artist will present a series of photographs taken at the abandoned premises of an American bank right after the recession. The series is adjoined by a one-to-one photographic reconstruction of a vault. As a metaphor for avidity and incessant accumulation, “The Bank” discloses fragility and instability of late capitalist strategies – in the flimsiness of the very construction and as an eloquent document of the global recession.   

The exhibition is organised and co-curated by Maria Lanko, participant of the PinchukArtCentre’s Curatorial Platform. The show is open on the 5th floor in the PAC-UA space from 18 until 23 September 2012.   

During the opening, Nicolas Grospierre and Maria Lanko will hold an Artist Talk dedicated to The Bank project. It will take place on September 18, 2012, at 18:00 in the PAC-UA space on the 5th floor of the art centre.    

23 June 2018 - 6 January 2019

A major international group exhibition including Francis Alÿs, Allora & Caldzadilla, Maurizio Cattelan, Olafur Eliasson, Damien Hirst, Zoë Leonard, Goshka Macuga, Takashi Murakami, Sondra Perry, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Luc Tuymans and Rachel Whiteread.

23 June 2018 - 9 December 2018

Exhibition focuses on the point of view and perspective distortions it engenders. In this case, the point of view is defined by the artist’s studio on the street formerly known as Perspektyvna (Perspective) Street (Kyiv), and it is brought to the institution and into the public space.

30 October 2018 - 6 January 2019

The Research Platform of the PinchukArtCentre presents a group exhibition “A Space of One’s Own”, which offers one possible perspective on the history of Ukrainian art and the place of women in it by emphasizing the preeminent art phenomena and taking into account the complex specificity of the Ukrainian sociopolitical context. With the aim to generate a living archive of Ukrainian contemporary art from the early 1980s to present, the PinchukArtCentre’s Research Platform visualizes the results of its work through a regular exhibition practice.
