Launched by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009, the Prize is open to all artists up to the age of 35 with the aim of acknowledging and giving long-term support to a future generation of artists from all over the world.

Traditionally supporting young artists from Ukraine where the PinchukArtCentre is located, the winner of the national prize for young artists in 2013 Zhanna Kadyrova will also be included into the shortlist of the Future Generation Art Prize 2014, bringing the maximum number of artists in the exhibition to 21.

Jury consisting of prominent curators, directors of museums, artists and experts will be publically announced along with names of 20 artists shortlisted for the Future Generation Art Prize in June 2014.  

From its launch the Future Generation Art Prize and its idea to develop a network of young artists worldwide has been supported by its Patron Artists including Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Andreas Gursky and Takashi Murakami. Besides providing advice and support for the winning artist, Patron Artists also present a solo show in the PinchukArtCentre parallel to the exhibition of shortlisted artists for the Prize. In 2010 and 2012 there were solo shows by Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst.

A distinguished international Board oversees the Future Generation Art Prize.  In addition to chairman Victor Pinchuk and the four Patron Artists, the Board’s membership includes Eli Broad, Dakis Joannou, Elton John, Miuccia Prada and art museum directors Richard Armstrong (Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Museum), Glenn D. Lowry (The Museum of Modern Art),  and Alfred Pacquement (Musée nationale d’art moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou).
