Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation revealed that Pinchuk made the single largest outside donation to Trump’s foundation in 2015.
Davos, Switzerland — ModernARTization: Art and Philanthropy Changing Societies. Yes, it’s a mouthful, and I also don’t know what it means, and the presentation didn’t help. Organizer and philanthropist, Victor Pinchuk, hosted a gathering at the Morosani Schweizerhof Hotel in Davos, Switzerland to discuss how philanthropy can change and educate societies through art. I walked away with the impression that the rich were patting themselves on the back.
The personal foundation of Damien Hirst’s friend and hunting buddy, Victor Pinchuk, is inviting the Davos elite to produce a spin painting with the formaldehyde man himself using the artist’s spin painting machines and, according to the Pinchuk Foundation press release, “specially delivered to Davos for this occasion.” OMFG, what a treat! Though you’re really going to love the quote he provided.
From Artforum: “In press notes, the exhibition is loosely termed a retrospective, but the majority of the works on display are new paintings, many making their world debut — and potentially final stop, if rumors are to be believed — in Kiev.”
