Theme Tour “Installation through the prism of oppositions individual/collective, emotions/technology”

On Saturday, July 6, at 17:00 PinchukArtCentre invites all visitors to join a Thematic Tour “Installation through the prism of oppositions individual/collective, emotions/technology”.

A characteristic feature of the contemporary art discourse is the presence of so-called binary oppositions, i.e. controversy strategy, resulting in dualistic works. This theme tour will focus on installations of Chinese artists that embody ideas in the light of an individualistic worldview and collective historical memory. The tour will also deal with emotional content of the artworks presented within “Collection Platform 4: Emotions and technology” exhibition. 

The event starts at 17:00 on the 2nd floor of the art centre, reception area. The tour will be guided by Tetyana Erochova, the PinchukArtCentre’s tour guide.

Thematic tours can be arranged on request for schools and universities.
