III Open Call and “EX” Prizes for Experimental New Media Art
(en castellano más abajo)
Due to the encouraging results viewed in the former two open calls and driven by the commitment expressed by JUSTMAD art fair on their support of electronic art and specially of our association, we make this third call which intends to outgrow the development and innovations settled in the first two. This time with the invaluable sponsorship of Arts Connections Foundation.
We are working towards “normalizing” New Media Art and making it available, on a regular basis on the existing art spaces in Spain. The prior calls and prizes were a complete success both from the point of view of the quality and quantity presented, as for the impact that this art obtained in JustMad 6 and 7. In 2016, JustMad was atended by 25,000 visitors and welcomed 50 galleries from around the globe. Media coverage also reached a high point with hundreds of articles on the press as well as on important TV programs. Thanks to this repercussion EX was invited to participate from november 29 to december 5, on the 10th edition of Pinta Miami – a contemporary fair satelite of ArtBasel – and one of the most important art fairs of iberoamerica.
As a result of the collaboration between EX and JustMAD, EX will also curate a complete section devoted entirely to electronic art within JustMAD8.
This year’s call will offer two prizes, sponsored generously by Arts Connection foundation, in its long support to New Media Art. A 2500 € cash prize and a Residency to be developed at Arts Connection Foundation spaces at Miami.
The terms of the Residency include:
- Round-trip airplane ticket
- One month residency
- 1000 € for subsistence allowance
- Access to wifi and audio and video devices
- Presentation at Miami New Media Festival
- Personal exhibition at Arts ConnectionFoundation spaces.
The winning works will be exhibited at the New Media section.
