Social Art Award

PINK SILENCE is the Winner of the Social Art Award 2019!

Great news! The PINK SILENCE social sculpture was chosen as the winner of the  2019 Social Art Award! A ten-member international jury consisting of curators, artists, and scientists selected Pink Silence out of 558 entries from around the world, as an extremely socially relevant and artistically valuable piece. The Social Art Award honors art that aims to create social change by questioning existing systems and paradigms. Their motto is: Can art be a catalyst for change? They understand artists to be visionaries, utopians, and agents for change with the ability to influence society by creating emotionally compelling experiences.

The prize is awarded by the Institute for Art and Innovation, which specializes in facilitating targeted interventions at the interface of art, science, and technology to bring about positive change.
