Future Generation Art Prize prolonged its application procedure till July 16 to offer the opportunity to all artists throughout the world to take part in the 5th edition of the biannual global contemporary art prize. All artists aged 35 or younger from anywhere in the world, working in any medium are invited to apply. Entries can be submitted online at www.futuregenerationartprize.org.
Awarded through a competition, a highly respected selection committee appointed by a distinguished international jury reviews every application and nominates 20 artists for the shortlist. These artists will be commissioned to create new works on view in exhibitions at the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv and the Venice Biennale, curated by Björn Geldhof (artistic director, PinchukArtCentre).
The main prize winner receives USD 100,000 split between a USD 60,000 cash prize and a USD 40,000 investment in their practice. A further USD 20,000 is awarded as a special prize/s between up to five artists at the discretion of the jury for supporting projects that develop their artistic practice.
The International Jury of the Future Generation Art Prize 2014 includes Pablo León de la Barra, curator at large, Latin America, Solomon R Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, New York; Björn Geldhof, artistic director, PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv; Helen Molesworth, writer; Gabi Ngcobo, curator, 10th Berlin Biennale; Tim Marlow, artistic director, Royal Academy of Arts, London; Christine Macel, chief curator, Centre Pompidou, Paris and curator, Venice Biennale 2017; and Hoor Al Qasimi, president, Sharjah Art Foundation and International Biennial Association.
A major contribution to the open participation of younger artists in the dynamic cultural development of societies in global transition, the Prize has supported the artistic development and production of new works of over 84 artists in exhibitions at the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv and the Venice Biennale. Alongside an open call, a global network of partner platforms and special correspondents work as ambassadors to encourage artists to apply for the prize.
The Future Generation Art Prize is widely acknowledged as a springboard for emerging talent. Lynette Yiadom Boakye won the Prize in 2012, before going on to be shortlisted for the Turner Prize and a highly successful solo show at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 2015. The winner of the first edition of the Prize, Cinthia Marcelle, represented Brazil at the 57th International Art Exhibition in 2017. See past winners of the prize here.
