Theme Tour “Producing an Artwork”
Sunday, November 9, 19:00

On Sunday, November 9, at 19:00, the PinchukArtCentre invites to Theme Tour entitled “Producing an Artwork”.

It is considered that a work of art is a product of an artist or a group of artists. However, production of an art object is a much more complicated process involving not only artists, but also a variety of practices that remain “behind the scenes”. Through the example of the art objects of the prize nominees Pilar Quinteros, Adrian Melis and Cally Spooner, as well as Patron Artists of the Future Generation Art Prize Damien Hirst and Andreas Gursky, the tour participants will study the process of creating an artwork, and will learn how artists use this process, incorporating it in their end product.

The event starts at 19:00 on the 2nd floor of the art centre, reception area. The tour will be guided by the PinchukArtCentre’s guide Arseniy Tarasov.


Registered event attendees will have priority entry to the art centre without queuing. To register in advance and receive additional information, please use the contact information below:
