Social Art Award
PINK SILENCE is the winner of the Social Art Award 2019!
Great news to announce! 2020 has started brilliantly because Social Sculpture has been chosen as the winner of the Social Art Award 2019! A ten-member international jury consisting of curators*, artists* and scientists* selected PINK SILENCE from the 558 entries submitted from around the world as extremely socially relevant and artistically valuable work. The Social Art Award honors art that aims to social change by questioning existing systems and paradigms with the intention of rethinking. They are: Can art be a catalyst for change? Artists are understood as visionaries, utopians, agents of change with the ability to influence society by creating emotionally compelling experiences.
The prize is awarded under the patronage of the Institute for Art and Innovation, which specializes in facilitating targeted interventions at the interface of art, science, and technology in order to bring about positive change.
