Open to emerging and established artists working with technology and digital media, the competition offers a prize fund of $10,500, plus shortlisted and winning artists will have their works included in Lumen's annual programme of exhibitions and events around the world.
Now in its 6th year, The Lumen Prize has already awarded over $40,000 in prize money and has staged over 30 exhibitions worldwide, in cities including London, New York, Shanghai, Amsterdam and Athens.
The 2017 prizes are:
Doug Dodds, Senior Curator, Victoria & Albert Museum, London
The Longlist will be determined by the International Selectors' Committee (ISC), co-chaired by Irini Papadimitriou (V&A and Watermans) and Janice Lane (National Museum Wales).
This year's ISC, which is made up of curators, gallerists, and academics, includes Carla Gannis (2016 Lumen Prize Founder's Prize winner and digital professor at Pratt Institute, NY), Kelani Nichole (TRANSFER Gallery), Alessio de Vecchi (2016 Lumen Prize Gold Award winner) and Scott Draves (2015 Lumen Prize Founder's Prize winner).
In 2016 the Gold Award was presented to the Italian duo Fabio Giampietro and Alessio de Vecchi for Hyperplanes of Simultaneity, a virtual reality experience which transformed the traditional canvas into a 360° cityscape. Since winning the award the duo have been featured in national, technology and arts press, and Fabio recently hosted a series of workshops at the House of Peroni experiential event in London.
The closing date for entries is 1 June 2017 at 11:59 GMT.
The winner will be announced on September 21st at the Lumen Prize Winners' Gala in London.
