Oleksandr Soloviov is a curator, art historian, and participant in the 'Paris Commune' squat — the legendary place and phenomenon in Ukrainian art history that has become a centre of contemporary art development in the 1990s.

For several years (with a break), he was a member of the Supervisory Board of the Soros Center for Contemporary Art in Kyiv and Odesa. From the beginning of 2003 to the middle of 2010, he worked with Victor Pinchuk's foundation 'Contemporary Art in Ukraine' and then at PinchukArtCentre.

In recent years, Soloviov worked as a curator of contemporary art projects at Mystetskyi Arsenal — the largest public art institution in Ukraine. Soloviov was the curator of the Ukrainian pavilion at the 50th, 52nd and 55th Venice Biennale.
