PinchukArtCentre presents Collection Platform 3: Forever Now show, a comprehensive selection of nine artists, highlighting central work groups presented in a space devoted to each artist. The exhibition is located on the 5th floor of the art centre.
The show represents a dynamic combination of leading artists of today including Maurizio Cattelan, Olafur Eliasson, Andreas Gursky, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Boris Mikhailov, Takashi Murakami, together with the representatives of new generation: the winner of the first edition of the PinchukArtCentre Prize Artem Volokytin and the winner of the Future Generation Art Prize Cinthia Marcelle.
Some highlights of the exhibition are: Pyongyang V by Andreas Gursky that will be exhibited in Ukraine for the first time; Self-Portrait by Jeff Koons from the Celebration series; triptych Nothing Matters / The Empty Chair by Damien Hirst; My Lonesome Cowboy and Hiropon by Takashi Murakami; and From the series Football (2003) by Boris Mikhailov.
Changing twice a year, the collection platform is highlighting leading artists of our time together with upcoming new positions in the exhibition platform. Featuring central Ukrainian artists as part of the Collection Platform, this program allows a new perspective on contemporary art. It is a dynamic model of interaction between the collection and new workgroups with a focus on on their artistic value.
Collection Platform viewing area directly connected to selected works offers the audience a deeper understanding of artists and their works. The idea is to slow down the speed of viewing and, by giving more information, allow the visitors to acquire more knowledge, competence and experience as integral part of the education offensive.
