Now open for its 2021 edition, the main idea behind the festival and the competition is to promote modern art as a form of dialogue with the public and to encourage young artists to create art engaged in reality. Billboards – the symbol of the modern age consumption – are transformed into an object of consideration, reflection and a deep insight into ourselves and the surrounding.
Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme: Getting infected with untruth. How can we find our path in a world full of contradictions, chaos and uncertainty?
This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor for all the processes taking place in the world today. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that the notion of truth is a fundamental problem in the contemporary world, posing a challenge for individuals, societies and the globalised contemporary world.
Both individual artists and groups of artists can participate in the competition. If some other slogan or phrase is used in the work, it should be expressed in either Polish or English language.
There is no entry fee.
Open worldwide to all people, artists and students.
From all the entries, the jury will select 6 most interesting works which will be printed and displayed on billboards in the city space during the Art Moves Festival in September 2021 in Torun, Poland. The best selected work will receive the Main Award in the amount of 3500 PLN (approx. 782 EUR, 952 USD).
Deadline: July 20, 2021
