IV National Art Competition New Situations

 We are pleased to announce that the IV National Art Competition New Situations entitled Wybrzmienie is starting, organized by the Foundation for the Development and Promotion of Fine Arts iki.

The competition is intended for students and graduates of art courses in higher education who are under 45 years of age.

We are waiting for your applications from now until July 31, 2024.

The competition task is to create a visual work in any technique (painting, graphics, sculpture, photography, video, installation, mixed and own techniques, as well as intermedia and multimedia projects). The formula of participation, open to various media, is limited only by this year’s theme WYBRZMIENIE.

“A man who has no music in him,
Who is not moved by the sweetness of consonant tones,
Is capable of betrayal, robbery, deceit,
The movements of his senses are as dull as night,
Desires dark as Erebus,
Do not believe any of them! –
– Listen to the music.”
William Shakespeare

When we hear that something has sounded out – we think not only about the end of something’s sound or the cessation of being heard. To sound out also means to hear something in a special way, but also to be heard.

In his treatise On Spirituality in Art, the outstanding representative of abstract painting, W.Kandinsky, wrote:“Generally speaking, colour is a way of exerting a direct influence on the soul. Colour is the key. The eye is the hammer. The spirit is the many-sided piano. In this way, it also becomes clear that the harmony of colours must be founded only on the intended movement of the human soul. This is the foundation that we will call the principle of inner necessity.”
Since the musical tone has direct access to the soul, and colour and form are an echo of experience deep down, let your art resonate today and reveal what is deepest.
Each participant can submit a maximum of 3 works to the competition that correspond to the theme of this year’s edition.
All distinguished works will be presented during the vernissage and at the exhibition in the Gallery in Warsaw. The winners will receive a cash prize funded by the Foundation for the Development and Promotion of Fine Arts iki.
Details of the Competition are included in the Competition Rules, which can be downloaded together with the Application Form below.
