Recontemporary Prize / Open Call
Deadline Apr 30, 2024
Turin, Italy

On the occasion of its 5th anniversary, Recontemporary launches the Premio Recontemporary with the aim of supporting emerging artistic talent, offering new talents an opportunity for personal and professional growth. Recontemporary is a non-profit cultural association dedicated to video art, the first independent space in Italy dedicated exclusively to new media art. Rec promotes exhibitions and multimedia artists and develops educational projects on contemporary art and digital technologies.

The Premio Recontemporary includes:

– Organization of a solo exhibition at Recontemporary, from July 3 to August 3, 2024;
– A prize worth €1000 to support the acquisition of an artwork on display to become part of the Recontemporary collection;
– An artist fee of €200 to support exhibition planning;
– A one-year mentoring program curated by Recontemporary, aimed at supporting the career development of the winning artist with a contribution of 1500€. The financial support will be disbursed by Recontemporary throughout the year, to support the professional consultancy program and is intended for participation in international fairs, exhibition openings, or festivals, with the aim of facilitating the integration of the artist into the contemporary art market.

Recontemporary’s intention is to build, through the support of an international jury and special mentions, a network of collaborations and exchanges that can amplify the resonance of the selected artist’s work.

The Call is open to those whose practice focuses on moving image, video, and new media as individuals or collectives, with no limitations based on nationality, age, gender, or background, and who have not yet had the opportunity to exhibit their works in solo exhibitions within an art institution (i.e. foundations, museums, independent spaces, festivals, fairs, etc.).

    Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.
