The Global South Award
With 9 years under our belt, Lumen’s community is truly international. But we are not as diverse as we’d like. To help change this, this year we are launching the Lumen Prize Global South Award to celebrate the very best art made with technology by artists from Africa, Latin America and the developing economies of Asia. Artists living in those countries – or with passports from those countries and living outside those countries – are eligible.
As announced on 9 September, the shortlist for this year’s Global South Award is:
Circles of Care – Ana Carolina Estarita Guerrero, Colombia
Iceberg Installation – Fernando Velázquez, Brazil
Quantum – Rejane Cantoni, Brazil
Does resisting make us men? – Maksaens Denis, Haiti
Walk with me – Chao Wang, China
The Cosmos Within Us – Tupac Martir, Mexico
Nuestra Victoria / Our Victory – Julieta Gil, Mexico
Terram in Aspectu – Liliana Farber, Uruguay
The winner, who will be announced at our awards ceremony on 22/10, will receive a cash prize of US$1000.
This prize has been made possible by the kind support from a member of Lumen Art Project’s Board of Advisors, Chris Choa as well as Jury Panel Member Melanie Lenz, digital curator of the V&A.
Countries eligible: All countries in Asia – with the exception of Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan – Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Africa, and the Middle East – with the exception of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
