Ukrainian businessman Victor Pinchuk's art collection includes works by Carsten Holler, Xavier Veilhan and Olafur Eliasson, among others. In Seplember 2006, he opened the first contemporary art center in the Ukraine. Designed by french architect Philippe Chiambaretta, the futurist building boasts 2,600 square meters on the top three floors of the Arena building, opposite the Bessarabskaya Market.
