Kyiv Sculpture Project 2014 (KSP) – the non-profit festival of contemporary sculpture in urban space – announces the open call for artists under 35 from all around the world to participate in the exhibition of the Main project and be considered for the Kyiv Sculpture Project Prize. 

Kyiv Sculpture Project Prize is the first Ukraine-based specialized prize for young artists working in the public realm. In 2012 KSP received over 300 applications from 39 countries. The Main Prize was split between two projects: The Seashell by Zhanna Kadyrova (Ukraine) and Moonstruck by Karin van der Molen (Netherlands). 

The main focus of KSP 2014 is Art in the City.

  • How does art interact with the city and its inhabitants? 
  • How can it change the attitude toward public space and form new understandings of the urban environment? 
  • Ultimately, how can a work of art influence our everyday life? 

Kyiv Sculpture Project provides an opportunity for artists to share their own practical consideration of contemporary art and urban public space.

Submissions will be accepted from 30 October to 20 December 2013 inclusive. The selection will be announced in February 2014. The Festival provides a grant to cover artwork production, flight and accommodation in Kyiv.
