Hyundai Motor Group has begun their open call for the fifth edition of the VH AWARD for Asia’s new media artists. Established in 2016, this award supports the discovery and exhibition of emerging media artists whose work engages with technology and the context of Asia and its future.
Applicants for the fifth VH AWARD are required to submit a proposal to produce audiovisual screen-based works that may include but are not limited to, video art, moving image, film, motion graphics, computer animation, gaming, and more. Individuals, teams, or collectives from all over the world are invited to submit applications, including artists who are based outside of Asia but have a connection to the region.
Finalists will be selected for their originality and aesthetics, compelling conception and innovation, quality of presentation, and sophisticated employment of technology. Jury members include art world professionals such as Martin Honzik (Chief Curatorial Officer of Ars Electronica and Managing Director of Ars Electronica Festival, Prix, and Exhibitions); Sook-Kyung Lee (Senior Curator, International Art [Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational] of Tate Modern); Roderick Schrock (Curator, Executive Director of Eyebeam); Aaron Seeto (Director of Museum MACAN); and Yukiko Shikata (independent curator and art critic).
The five shortlisted artists, teams, or collectives will each receive a grant of $25,000 (USD) for the production of new artworks and will be invited to participate in an online residency program led by networked artists and curators of Eyebeam from October to December 2022. The Grand Prix recipient will be announced during an award ceremony in May 2023 and will receive an additional grant of $25,000 (USD), with artworks by all finalists exhibited across various platforms around the globe.
The call for entries will close on July 28, 2022, at 11am (EST) / July 28, 2022, at midnight (KST).
