Calling all video and sound artists…
For the next installment of the WPA’s Experimental Media Series, WPA will present a selection of innovative video and sound works over the course of two evenings at The Phillips Collection in Washington DC.
For the screening, WPA is calling all video and sound artists to submit works that explore any subject matter of their choice in innovative ways. A selection of the received video and sound works will be presented in the framework of a public screening. Artists selected for the screening nights will be notified during the last week of August. Additionally, two artists submitting the most compelling entries, as reviewed by the juror and based on overall quality and innovation will be awarded the Kraft Prize for New Media of $750 and the WPA Experimental Media Prize of $750 on October 1. Please note that the WPA Prize will go to an artist living and working in the Mid-Atlantic region.
