PinchukArtCentre opens applications for Understanding the Museum educational programme for teenagers

17 February 2014

The PinchukArtCentre opens applications for yet another edition of Understanding the Museum – the educational programme developed by the art centre specialists for the students of Year 10 and 11. During this special course young participants will become familiar with the practices of contemporary art, different approaches in exhibition handling, and will learn about the specifics of professional art institutions. The sessions will be held every Wednesday at 18:00, starting from March 12 until April 23, 2013. Participation is free of charge.  

There will be three related series of Understanding the Museum held throughout the year. The sessions of the first series will be focused on three PinchukArtCentre projects: exhibition of Belgian artist Jan Fabre, joint project of the art centre and ANTIAIDS Foundation Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way, and video project (De)-Construction: Reality and Fiction. The specifics of the programme are to attract participants to dialogue and discussion of the works of art.

The sessions will be hosted by the PinchukArtCentre’s junior curator Tetiana Kochubinska. Additionally, the events will feature media theorist Yanina Prudenko, artis Mykyta Kadan and historian Mykhailo Zubar.

The number of participants is limited to 12.

Registration is open until March 7, 2014. Please, complete application form to register.

Within the framework of the first three courses of the programme Understanding the Museum, through the example of the solo show of Anish Kapoor, “China China” and the group exhibition of 21 nominees for the Future Generation Art Prize 2013, the course participants got acquainted with approaches to temporary and permanent exhibition. The majority of the programme audience for the very first time had been offered an opportunity to communicate directly with artists, including Tiberiy Silvashi, Lada Nakonechna, Alevtyna Kakhidze, Lesia Khomenko, Ivan Yunakov, Tetiana Goriushyna, Oleksandr Kurmaz, Oleg Hryschenko and “Open Group”. Towards the end of the course each participant conducted a discussion tour devoted to one of the art objects showcased at the art centre.

Education is at the core of the PinchukArtCentre activities. It is an open platform for our audience and in a wider sense for the whole society to get access to the world of art, experience and competence. Based on the international challenge of our exhibition programme, it offers a wide range of different views. PinchukArtCentre Education invites children, students, families, schools, universities and artists to participate in an open discourse, guided activities and discussions on contemporary art and the exhibitions at PinchukArtCentre.
