The PinchukArtCentre presents the first in Eastern Europe solo exhibitions by the Canadian photographer Jeff Wall and British artist Gary Hume. The exhibitions will last from 4 February to 1 April 2012.The show by Jeff Wall entitled In light, black, colour, white, and dark includes 16 photographs and 7 light boxes. The exhibition is a special artist selection composing in each room delicate relations between nature, still lives and the young people on the borderline between young and mature.With his project the PinchukArtCentre brings together a number of Wall’s most recent works alongside a selection of his earlier pictures. The exhibition includes iconic works such as War game (2007) as well as light boxes and new opaque colour photographs, among them the monumental Band & crowd, one of his largest works.
The show by Gary Hume entitled Beauty includes more than 60 paintings, drawings and two sculptures. The show offers a complex view of Gary Hume as an artist caught up in the tension between beauty and concept. The show combines some essential older works with recent work groups such as Rainbow, Anxiety and the Horse and several newly created paintings and sculptures such as the series Bikini, never shown in public before, as well as other drawings and paintings.
The PinchukArtCentre also presents a new PAC-UA project – an exhibition by Ukrainian artist Mykola Matsenko. The show entitled Neofolk is the 5th PAC-UA project, which presents new production of leading Ukrainian artists embedded in context of the Collection Platform. The exhibition is open on the 5th floor from February 4 to March, 2012. With Neofolk Matsenko continues with the most abstract form within his artistic practice and brings it into a conceptually defined space, driving the perception of the viewer toward a sensitive repetition, colour and form. He represents Ukrainian tradition, folklore and history by means of abstraction. The exhibition is a unique project where the artist pushes limits of the representation within his paintings, showing 46 pieces specially produced for the exhibition. Additionally, the PinchukArtCentre presents a partially renewed Collection Platform 2: Circulation, representing leading international and Ukrainian contemporary artists. The show located on the 5th floor of the art centre will be on display till April 1, 2012.
