You may sign up for the international photo and visual arts competition stillMapp Bucharest 2016, organized by creart – The Centre for Creation, Art and Tradition, Municipality of Bucharest, in partnership with Maxin10sity Ltd. – as Artistic Curator and 360 Revolution Srl – Technical Producer.
The organizers would like to propose a contest aiming to promote the interaction between local culture and Romanian and international artists, consequently the participants may reside in any country of the EU.
In 2016, the greatest video mapping show of the world will be dedicated to interactions. The event will talk about dialogues. We shall imagine a show as a brilliant conversation between The Palace of Parliament and ten thousand people gathered in front of it. Pictures loaded with profound meanings will build a powerful connexion between artists and their public.
Image can be any kind of self-interpreted concept. It can be abstract or figurative, realistic or symbolical. It may represent an intimate and personal declaration of an artist towards the audience or it may become part of a large narrative structure, enclosing the city and the whole world. The only mandatory element: there must be a conversation, not a monologue.
iMapp Bucharest celebrates the artistic and cultural life of our Capital. We strongly believe in the artistic freedom although we do not condone any type of political message or social activism. We will not allow any offensive or inappropriate content.
