CALL FOR ENTRIES - AWARD NEW MEDIA FOUNDATION LIEDTS-MEESEN
Deadline: November 1, 2009
At the occasion of the 'Update III' exhibition that is organised as a Biennial event at the Zebrastraat Ghent, the Liedts-Meesen Foundation will award for the second time, an artwork of design of work by a living artist distinguishing himself or herself in the field of digital art. This award will consist of a cash purse of 5000 € and a showcase in the Update IV to be held in 2012.
The upcoming exhibition, Update III (in 2010), will be held in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou in Paris, under the artistic direction of the exhibition's commissioner Christine Van Assche. At the same time, the 10 works selected for the Liedts-Meesen Foundation award will be exhibited and integrated into the publication accompanying the exhibition.
Update's mission is to expand the scope of contemporary artistic creations and traditional media with works dedicated to employing contemporary and new technologies in an original and intelligent way: treatment of sounds and light, use of new media, application of innovative evolutions in communications, telecommunications and broadcasting, centred on the world of information, communication, and computers and interaction.
These descriptions are in no way restrictive and should be interpreted in a broader meaning.
