The Future Generation Art Prize 2019 is a biannual global contemporary art prize to discover, recognize and give long-term support to a future generation of artists. Established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009, the Prize supported the artistic development and production of new works of over 84 artists in exhibitions at the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv and as official collateral events at the Venice Biennale in 2011, 2013, and 2017.
All artists aged 35 or younger from anywhere in the world, working in any medium are invited to apply for the Prize.

Subsequently, all of them will present their works in the Future Generation Art Prize exhibition at the Venice Biennale.
