The organisers of the Future Generation Art Prize have extended the application deadline to June 3 to give artists more time to participate in the sixth edition of the contemporary art prize, Artforum
reports.

Artists aged from 18 to 35 are eligible. The selection committee will nominate 20 artists for the shortlist. The shortlisted artists will be commissioned to create new works that go on display at the PinchukArtCentre in Kyiv and at the Venice Biennale.

The 2021 jury includes Lauren Cornell, director of the graduate programme and chief curator at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College; Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, curator of the thirty-fourth edition of the São Paulo Bienal; Elvira Dyangani Ose, director of the Showroom; Bjorn Geldhof, artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre; artist Shilpa Gupta; Ralph Rugoff, director of the Hayward Gallery and artistic director of the Fifty-Eighth Venice Biennale; and Eugene Tan, director of the National Gallery Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum.

The jury will choose the grand prize winner, who will receive a $60,000 cash prize, as well as $40,000 that must go toward the production of new work.

The previous winners of the $100,000 prize include Dineo Seshee Bopape, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Cinthia Marcelle.
