Nikita Kadan is winner of the supporting prize in the Future Generation Art Prize 2014

The Future Generation Art Prize established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009 is a worldwide contemporary art prize to discover, recognize and give long-term support to a future generation of artists. The Prize is a major contribution to the open participation of younger artists in the dynamic cultural development of societies in global transition.
The Prize is an innovative new international award for artists up to 35 years of age, investing in the artistic development and new production of works. Awarded through a competition, judged by a distinguished jury, the Prize is founded on the idea of generosity, a network of outstanding patron artists and institutional partners, and a highly democratic application procedure.

Transit art gallery

Transit was founded in 1988 in Leuven, Belgium by Dirk Vanhecke and Bert de Leenheer. The gallery moved to Mechelen in 1998.
Transit exhibits and promotes contemporary art.
The gallery is housed in an art déco building (1934) where art works are shown in an informal context.
Transit believes that every way of expression that an artist chooses can be a valid way, therefore different ways of expression (painting, photography, performance, sculpture, installation, video, audio, concept, ...) can find their place in the gallery and in the office that also serves as permanent exhibition space.

Transit werd opgericht in Leuven in 1988 door Dirk Vanhecke en Bert de Leenheer .De galerie verhuisde naar Mechelen in 1998.
