Your 3D Art Project produced by Orange and exhibited at Palais de Tokyo in Paris
Orange and Palais de Tokyo are teaming up to encourage artistic creation through new technologies and are rewarding the best projects of creations in 3D. PUSHYOURART 2013 is an opportunity for young artists to practice or learn about an innovative and emerging creative technique, and to show their artistic work during a unique exhibition at Palais de Tokyo. By taking part in the PUSHYOURART adventure, the 10 best participants will attend a Master Class, where they will meet professionals from the world of art and 3D creation.
The competition is open to all young artists under 35 years of age at the time of application, and who are European residents. No specific knowledge(s) about 3D is required; projects will be selected for their artistic qualities. The Master Class and professionals will help you with the production of your artwork and teach you everything you need. Now join the contest!
The Jury is responsible for selecting the ten participants of the Master Class, as well as the winner and three runners up of the competition. It is made up of prestigious personalities from the world of art and 3D creation: Jean de Loisy, President of Palais de Tokyo; and Christine Albanel, former French Minister for Culture and current Executive Director in charge of events, cultural partnerships and solidarity at Orange; Mathieu Mercier, artistic patronage; Jean Blaise, Artistic Director; Ghislaine Le Rhun-Gautier, 3D Specialist at Orange; Jean-Hubert Martin, General Curator for Heritage and exhibition curator; Karen Archey, American art critic; Samuel Bianchini, artist and professor at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris; Fabrice Bousteau, Managing Editor of Beaux Arts magazine.
A three-day Master Class from March 21 to 23, 2013 at Palais de Tokyo in Paris
The ten selected artists will be able to develop their projects during the Master Class thanks to the artistic and technical training of a program of conferences and workshops led by professionals.
At the end of the three days, the participants will present their projects to the Jury by showing their preliminary works (sketches, models, prototypes, etc.) that they have produced during the Master Class. The final production of the work will take place later.
Once the artists have presented their works, the Jury will name the winner and three runners-up of the contest.
The first prize: the production of their work fully financed by Orange (with a maximum budget of 30,000 EUR) and an exhibition at Palais de Tokyo alongside Mathieu Mercier, the artist sponsoring the competition, who will also produce a 3D piece in the same conditions as the young winning artist. For the three runners-up: presentation of their sketches and preliminary works during this same exhibition.
Three major stages of the competition
Stage 1: Starting from October 25, 2012 up until January 14, 2013: imagine a piece of art and describe your project in the application papers.
Stage 2: Start of March: the Jury will announce the ten participants who will have the chance to develop their project by attending an exceptional three-day Master Class at Palais de Tokyo at the end of March 2013.
Stage 3: End of March, on completion of the Master Class, the Jury will vote for the winner, whose work will be produced then exhibited at Palais de Tokyo. Three other shortlisted artists will see their preliminary works presented during the same exhibition.
