Björn Geldhof, artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre: “The launch of the PinchukArtCentre Prize is always the most exciting moment for us in the year as it gives us a view on who is coming up next into Ukrainian art scene. With the changing country we also see the art scene changing dramatically in the most positive sense. I am convinced that this year will be a year full of surprises and amazing artists will be shown to Ukraine and to the world.”
