PinchukArtCentre opens applications for Understanding the Museum educational programme for teenagers

12 February 2013

The PinchukArtCentre opens applications for Understanding the Museum – the educational programme developed by the art centre specialists for teens aged 14 to 16. This special course introduces young participants to the practices of contemporary art in the context of a professional institution. The 4th edition of Understanding the Museum will last from February 20 till April 20, 2013. Participation is free of charge.  

Focusing on the current exhibitions of Chapman brothers, Tony Oursler, and “Collection Platform 4: Emotion and Technlogy” presented at the PinchukArtCentre, programme participants will learn about preparation processes preceding the show, explore exposition as a basis of the museum communication, and understand museum as a social and cultural institution and educational centre. Through the series of talks and activities, course tutors will have an open dialogue with the participants, motivating young students to develop their own reading of artworks, and stimulating their creative thinking.

The course consists of 7 theory and practice classes, and encompasses participation in discussions with the participant of the PinchukArtCentre’s Curatorial Platform Tetiana Kochubinska and artists, Alevtyna Kakhidze, Mykyta Kadan, and Yuriy Kruchak, who will be joining special lecture sessions.

Maximum number of participant is 15.

Registration is open until February 18, 2013. 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 and the group exhibition of 21 nominees for the Future Generation Art Prize 2012, 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, and Tetiana Goriushyna. 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.
