PinchukArtCentre opens applications for Understanding the Museum educational programme for teenagers

2 September 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 two times a week, starting from September 14 until October 4, 2014. Participation is free of charge.  

The specifics of the programme are to attract participants to dialogue and discussion of the works of art. During the current cycle, participants will focus on the works presented at the exhibition "Fear and Hope" and I.Svetlichnyi’s personal project under «PAC UA. Reconsideration". During lessons, united by a common theme "Museum of Modern Art", teens will learn the basics of museum theory, learn about the appearance of first museums of contemporary art, analyze a museum from the standpoint of artistic strategies, and talk about the formation of the "museum community" and propose their own approaches to attract visitors to the museum.

The sessions will be hosted by the PinchukArtCentre’s junior curator Tetiana Kochubinska. Additionally, the events will feature artists Mykyta Kadan and Yuri Kruchak.

The number of participants is limited to 12.
Registration is open until September 11, 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.
