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).

From September 28th till September 30 the PinchukArtCentre presented five solo exhibitions by five young Polish artists featuring new productions and most recent works. Each show lasted one week. The artists on show included: Monika Zawadzki, Agnieszka Polska, Konrad Smoleński, Nicolas Grospierre.

Transfer offered a first experience in international curatorial practice to the junior curators of the PinchukArtCentre’s Curatorial Platform. Lizaveta German, Tatiana Kochubinska, and Maria Lanko organized and co-curated the exhibitions together with Björn Geldhof, Artistic manager of the PinchukArtCentre.

The shows at the PinchukArtCentre were combined with an intense series of lectures and artist talks, fuelling an exchange between the Polish art scene and the Ukrainian public. Among the lecturers: Alevtina Kakhidze, Ewa Gorzadek, Agnieszka Pindera, Daniel Muzyczuk. The programme was supported by Polish Institute in Kyiv.

Artist talks accompanied each opening of the show. They were led between the co-curators of the project and the artists.

Within the framework of the Transfer project presented at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle the following Ukrainian artists, nominees for the PinchukArtCentre Prize in 2009 and 2011, have presented their two-week individual exhibitions at the CCA of the summer 2012: Nikita Kadan, Zhanna Kadyrova, Volodymyr Kuznetsov, Lada Nakonechna and Mykola Rydnyi. Curator of the project was Marianna Dobkowska.   

Earlier five Ukrainian speakers were invited to Warsaw to present Ukraine’s cultural context and offer a critical discourse on Ukrainian contemporary art scene. Kateryna Botanova, Vasyl Cherepanyn, Alevtina Kakhidze, Maria Lanko, and Anna Łazar have visited Warsaw for the accompanying cycle of lectures.
