WRO Art Center and the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw are inviting you to an exhibition accompanying the 8th Best Media Arts Graduation Projects Competition.

The exhibition is a review of the best graduation projects created at public art academies in Poland – Gdansk, Katowice, Cracow, Lodz, Poznan, Szczecin, Warsaw, and Wroclaw – in the field of media art, intermedia, and multimedia.

The works selected in this edition of Best Media Arts Graduation Projects Competition, titled Dowody osobiste (Identity Proofs), are a commentary on the situation of constructing one’s own identity in the face of social rules.

Among presented works are video and multi-element intermedia installations and pieces that use and refer to VR technology. There are also performative statements. 

The exhibition is complemented by a series of Thursday meetings – Talks about Proofs, Saturday curator tours, and Sundays with WRO – workshop activities for families with children and friends, led by artists participating in the exhibition.

There are three awards planned for this year’s edition: the Main Prize, of 15,000 zlotys, funded by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, and awarded by an international jury composed of Yuriy Biley, Barbora Kundračíková, and Robert Verch. For the third time, the editors of Contemporary Lynx magazine will award their prize by publishing a portfolio/interview and doing additional promotional activities. The Audience Award will be chosen by the audience.
