Call – Transnumériques Awards 2015 – Art(s) & Network(s) – Spécial GIF

In the framework of the Festival of digital cultures, Transnumeriques (an event of Mons2015, European Capital of Culture), Transcultures, Media and Sound Arts Centre, launches 3 calls for proposals to participate to the 2015 edition of its Transnumeriques Awards – Art(s) and Network(s).

For this edition, Transcultures will focus its awards on the GIF and its animated images, (usually in a loop). Back to the earlier Web, the GIFs were very simple. In a late 2000s, a new generation of artists has emerged and promoted GIFs as a work of art in itself. Lately, GIF works have bee part of multiple online exhibitions, but also, exhibitions in contemporary art galleries. Transcultures is especially interested by the relation the art of GIF generates as meeting points of a certain culture which it became, if not the emblem, in any case the exercise of style…

The Transcultures Awards are supported by the Federation Wallonia-BrusselsMons2015, European Capital of Culture and the arts-numeriques.info plateform.
