Our aim is to advance artists' careers by providing them with unrestricted financial support that is coupled with a platform for increased visibility. We accept submissions twice a year via an open call.

We are currently accepting submissions for the Fall 2020 grant cycle.

Connect with Curators
We collaborate with contemporary curators holding prominent positions at major institutions in order to select our grant winners. Our open call provides you with a direct path to get your work in front of these forward thinking exhibition makers. Jurors for the Fall 2020 awards are:

Christine Koppes, Curator & Director of Public Programs

Jade Powers, Assistant Curator
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

Our jurors will be selecting 5 artists from our open call who will each receive $1,000. The jurors will also select a shortlist of 30 artists who will have their work archived at hopperprize.org.

When submitting your work, you will have the option to opt-in to be considered for possible Instagram features on our feed @hopperprize, where we currently reach an audience of over 46K. Our editors will be featuring select submissions on a rolling basis prior to the application deadline.

In addition to grant awards, our shortlist, and Instagram reach, we will be providing an additional platform for exposure via our online Journal Insights Into Contemporary Art. We launched this digital publication to give artists a new channel to amplify their voice while providing an in-depth look at their work, practice, and background. Grant recipients and shortlisted artists will all receive the opportunity to publish an interview to include any work of their choosing as a means of providing continued support beyond the open call.

The XV edition of Share Festival, the Italian exhibition of contemporary tech art and science, lead by the Artistic Director Bruce Sterling, announces the opening of the call. The theme of this edition of Share Prize is:

 

RIOTS

HERE WE ARE

 

An atmosphere of blissful calm prevails over Share Festival, in the fifteenth consecutive year of our technology-art fair. The cruel word “Crisis” has become old-fashioned here in Italy, a nation whose government is  the most stable of all the G-7 major powers.
Our city has recently signed a ten-point Manifesto of Non-Hostile Communications, which recommends wise principles of civilized discourse online (and is highly suited for public announcements like this one).  The City of Turin has recently celebrated its first “Festival of Technology,” where our erudite populace responded with polite appreciation to the marvels of science. This huge, crowd-pleasing tech festival appeared back-to-back with Turin’s vast, legendary “Artissima” art fair, so that our city can now justly boast of its learned patronage of every form of modern art, and modern research, too!
Here at Share Festival of Piemonte, the radical, cutting-edge art forms that we have long championed: tactical media, net.art, device art, code art, interactive installations and augmented experiences — are being legitimized, refined and civilized.   All of our avant-garde artistic eccentricities are fast becoming twenty-first century mainstream lifestyles. Our Share Festival jury for the year 2020 is the wisest and best-briefed that we have ever assembled, for it includes the doyenne of the Piedmontese art scene, the globally-famed art collector and cultural activist, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. She is ShareFestival’s favorite Knight of Arts and Letters. We are really looking forward to a close discussion of your artistic entries this year. Frankly, our festival has never seen such a halcyon situation.  We are the picture of smart-urban civility.
La vita é bella!

*******************************************

 

However… here, below the dividing-line…. what about all those other cities, here at the turn of the decade?    Crowds waves angry banner, subways are flaming, airports are besieged, lasers flare in the tear-gas clouds under the drones — urban mayhem smolders over every horizon!   Leaderless crowds cry out their need to take back a control that seems entirely illusory; polarized parliaments howl abuse and demand impeachments, blockades and barricades abound to stop overcrowded caravans where all the wheels have fallen off….  Tech unicorns fall flaming in disgrace, and even the ultra-rich weep and tremble in public venues; social lynch-mobs abound, while enlightened scientists flee the trolls; upheavals are met with ominous silence as the Internet’s plug is pulled over vast, stricken provinces.  The tenuous fabric of civilization is shredded as law enforcement agents randomly batter the passers-by, and frenzied outbursts of reckless passion and raw discontent shatter the one-way mirror of the status quo. Surveillance is redoubled as the surveilled can’t be bothered to behave; to “befriend” is an act of covert emnity, while to
“like” is passe’. A riot is not a revolution or a reform, it’s a burst of frenzy that concludes in melancholy astonishment. And yet: here we are.  Such is the social condition.  It could be anywhere, it could be anybody. 

What can we make of this? What’s to become of us?

 

Bruce Sterling, Share Festival Art Director
Jasmina Tesanovic, Share Prize Curator

 

The works nominated for the prize must comply with the theme. An International Jury will select 6 candidates for the award, who will be invited to take part in the exhibition, which will take place in Turin in May 2020. By the end of February 2020 the finalists will be announced.
