Publication / ArtUp charity auction

Shcherbenko Art Centre, with media support of Vogue UA, is delighted to announce first edition of ArtUp charity auction, which will take place on August 30, 2016 at 7pm. The silent auction offers more than 30 artworks from both established and emerging contemporary Ukrainian artists. Remarkable triptych written by Alexander Gnilitsky in the late 1990s is at the heart of the sale.
Earlier this summer, the National Art Museum of Ukraine has announced crowdfunding. Museum appealed to its audience with a request to help to raise funds for repair works of the 2nd floor of the building. Shcherbenko Art Centre, together with its artists join this crowdfunding campaign and will hold a special event for partners, collectors and “Friends of the Museum”, during which it will be possible to acquire works of contemporary art and design objects from the best Ukrainian producers. Part of the total revenue will be transferred to the Museum to support its activities.

National Art Museum of Ukraine is the main cultural institution in the country, the largest archive of Ukrainian art of different periods. At the moment, the Museum requires significant financial investment in the renovation of premises and exposition rooms. The museum was founded in 1899 by the efforts of Ukrainian collectors, philanthropists, business and intellectual elites. It was the first public museum in Kyiv. Today, the National Art Museum of Ukraine presents exhibitions of classic and contemporary art, has its own educational and children’s programs and functions as a platform for open cultural dialogue.
