Defiantly worth while. Having no idea what was in here when I stumbled pas and I was delighted to see such a contemporary art gallery. The exhibitions were all recent for emerging artists very modern in a wide range of media including, print art, 2000 gold teeth laid out on a floor, a maze and lots of mixed media video... More

The only thing that saves this review from "Terrible" is the fact that the exhibitions frequently change. When I visited, there were only a handful of works that I would even call art. Most works required no artistic training at all, and one was nothing more than obscene homosexual graffiti of the type one might expect to encounter in a... More

Some types of modern art are just fooling smart people. This is what i felt st the last exhibit i saw here. Most of the work was uninspiring. But if you read my previous review, previous review was great. So do your homeworks

I wasn't impressed when I first visited this museum a couple years ago. But still came again, and it looks like every next exhibition is better and better. I would recommend to visit with a guide, as it helps to understand the idea of art pieces better. It's a pity that you are not allowed to take photos( as in... More

Adorable, definitely worth visiting. Gave me lots of fresh impressions and an inspiration I needed. Absolutely must-visit when in Kyjev.

Pinchuk Art Centre keeps pleasing with very unusual and extra ordinary art exhibitions. The latest on Belgian Congo awakens all the senses and tells a lot about the colonial history of Africa.

Even if you are not into contemporary art, do not miss this place! It is central located, around 500 meters from Maidan. Outstanding contemporary art exhibitions from ukrainian and international artists are shown. On top of that, it has large opening hours from Tuesday to Sunday 12 to 20:30 and it is FREE of charge. An absolute must see in... More

next to bessarabsky market, its philantropic funder let people free admission to spread lesser known art. In this case it was an exhibition of young chinese artists on modern art. Hard to describe but really touching.

If you want a break from classical churches and historical sites (and have an interest in art), the Pinchuk Art Centre is a great museum in the center of the city with a rotating display by contemporary artists. (And it's free.) On view was a fascinating and thought-provoking exhibition by sculptor Anish Kapoor, whose work ranges from Joseph Beuys-like accumulations... More

Nice place in the center of Kiev. Pinchuk Art center presents the Contemporary art. The display of center changes often. Interesting works of the Belgian artist Jan Fabr about a colonialism in Africa in Congo. Pictures are done from unusual material - beetles of burncows. A basic idea of many pictures of gallery is a fight against AIDS. Modern design,... More
