PinchukArtCentre and British Council Ukraine present public talk by Caroline Douglas, Head of Arts Council’s Collection

26 September 2012

The PinchukArtCentre and British Council Ukraine present public talk within the Open Study Programme, featuring Caroline Douglas, Head of Arts Council’s Collection. The talk will take place on Saturday, September 29, at 16:00 at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv in Conference Hall #329 (60, Volodymyrska str., Red building). Admission is free.    

In a conversation with Bjorn Geldhof, Artistic Manager of the PinchukArtCentre, Caroline Douglas will share her experience of organizing “Flashback: Anish Kapoor” show.

Flashback is a major series of touring exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection, Southbank Centre. Taking as its starting point the Collection’s founding principle of supporting emerging artists through the purchase of their work, the series showcases internationally renowned British artists whose works have been acquired by the Collection. The monographic exhibitions present early pieces from the Collection alongside more recent work to give a unique insight into the evolution of these key figures in British art. Following on from the success of the first Flashback exhibition of work by Bridget Riley, the second artist in the series of exhibitions is the renowned artist Anish Kapoor.

Since joining the Arts Council Collection in 2006 Caroline Douglas has been responsible for purchasing policy there, as well as programming UK touring and one-off exhibitions such as the new Flashback series which opened with Bridget Riley in 2009 and continued with Anish Kapoor and Gary Hume in 2011-12. 

She is currently a trustee of the Charles Wallace (India) Trust, a trustee of Space Studios, a member of the Fine Art Faculty of the British School at Rome and a member of IACA. In 2010 Caroline was a judge for the Contemporary Art Society “Commission to Collect” annual award; in 2011 she is a judge for the Northern Art Prize and was a selector for Scotland in Venice in 2012.

Live streaming of all public talk will be available at the PinchukArtCentre and British Council Ukraine websites.

The final screening of the documentary will take place on September 30, 20:00, in the video lounge on the 6th floor of the PinchukArtCentre.

The Year of Anish Kapoor, created by British director Matthew Springford for the BBC One art series Imagine, reveals Anish Kapoor’s preparation for the exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Alan Yentob followed the artist in his London studio during a period of intense productivity. Kapoor talks about his childhood in India, his early years as an artist and his creative process.

The documentary (running time 55 minutes) will be displayed in English with Ukrainian subtitles.
