Bright young things

The Pinchuk Art Centre’s third bi-annual international Future Generation Prize awards ceremony took place on 6 December in Kiev, with 20 artists under 35 on the shortlist. While two multimedia artists, Nástio Mosquito of Angola and Carlos Motta of Colombia, split the main prize (see here), special prizes were awarded to three additional artists: Aslan Gaisumov (Russia) for a video about his native city Grozny in Chechnya, Nikita Kadan (Russia) for an installation exploring themes like provincial museology and Zhanna Kadyrova (Ukraine) for panoramic photographs of Kiev. Watch these three young artists accept their awards in this video clip.
