New Technological Art Award Foundation Liedts-Meesen 2012
After update_1 in 2006,we are determined to continue this series with update_4, to be held from 15th September till 18th of November 2012.
We want to put some new accents in update_4.We want to increase the importance of this contest by taking the following measures:
• New and adapted rules, which are stricter, and will focus more specifically on the artistic contribution of the new technologies,
• The number of nominees who will have the opportunity to show their works of art during update_4 will pass from 10 to 20,
• Finally, the works will be presented at three sites: Zebrastraat in Ghent, La Cambre in Brussels ( for works to be shown in the open air), and iMAL, also in Brussels.
As previously, the nominees will be selected by a professional jury, which will also award the final price of 5000 EUR; besides this, there will also be a price from the audience.
The second part of the event consists of an exhibition of renowned artists in the field of New Technological Art. Only two or three works will be presented at each site.
To these two activities will be added a third one, namely the organization of a three days colloquium on new tendencies in contemporary art.
