What is art in the 21st century? 

While some artists are keeping a very traditional approach to art, others are taking risks into the unknown and there has always been a constant debate about “What Is Art” and what makes it valuable. 

In contemporary world success can be seen in varied approaches, great examples are Damien Hirst and David Hockney, two of the world most famous and richest artists and yet with such a different approach to contemporary art. 

The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between different approaches to contemporary art and to demonstrate that either way can be successful.

The PleinAir Salon $33,000 Art Competition is a monthly online competition consisting of 19 categories. We award over $33,000 each year for this competition. The Annual Grand Prize winner receives a check for $15,000 and is featured on the cover of PleinAir Magazine. We award an additional $6,500 to the annual winners and award $1,100 monthly to the top three winners of each competition as well as a People’s Choice Award. Each of the 23 monthly winners will be automatically entered into the Annual Competition. The annual awards are presented live at the Plein Air Convention & Expo each spring.

Connect invites proposals from artists working across visual arts, music, literature, performing arts, design, and interactive media.

The Connect residency includes all living, travel and accommodation expenses within a fixed budget for the residency period at CERN and a production stipend of CHF 15,000 to support the creation of new artwork. In the case of an artist collective, all these costs will be split between the members. Additionally, parents can apply for financial support of CHF 1,000 per month to co-finance childcare.

To apply for the Connect residency, artists should submit a proposal that combines research and production. The scope of this proposal should include a project description that describes an artistic research period of two months at CERNengaging in close dialogue with scientists, engineers and staff at CERN, and a development phase in the form of a remote residency to define a new artwork. The application also requires describing the artist's motivation for applying and their interest in the CERN community and research in relation to their practice. 

For more details about the open call and residency, please read the terms and conditions of the call.

Online applications for Connect are open until 3 March 2023 at 23:59 CET. A jury of cultural experts and scientists will select the artist or collective who will receive the award and start the residency in 2023.
