Following the success of the Planète Art Solidaire Prize sponsored by Ruinart, Art of Change 21 continues its commitment to artists with the creation of the Eco-design Art Prize.

The Eco-design Art Prize 2023 aims to promote the culture and practice of eco-design in artistic creation and will be awarded at the Palais de Tokyo in January 2023.

Art of Change 21 is convinced that artists are at the heart of a greener future.  This competition is a chance to go beyond just « good practice » and for art to work in tandem with the scientific and technical to push for a greener tomorrow. Amongst other environmentally impactful factors; materials, production techniques, and transportation will be explored to identify innovative alternatives to the status quo.

The award ceremony will take place on the 10th of  January at the Tokyo Art Club, Palais de Tokyo, where 12 winners will be selected.  The finalists will then be invited to take part in three eco-design workshop days (March and June 2023) run by recognized experts from the art sector. Two of the 12 selected will also benefit from a life cycle analysis (LCA). This award is valued at 40,000 euros.

To all visual artists living in France (not students), regardless of whether their practice usually integrates ecology.  (sculpture, painting, video, digital, performance, photography …).

Call for applications closes on December 4th, 2022.
