The Lumen Prize Exhibition – a global tour of 50 juried works of digital fine art – will start travelling the world in January 2013, appearing in top venues around the globe. The tour kicks off in London’s Gallery 27, Cork Street, London. FQ Projects is honoured to hold the third stop in Shanghai from 23rd Feb to 3rd Mar.

On display will be the 50 works chosen by the Lumen Prize judges from over 500 submissions from all over the world, including the three top Lumen Prize winners. The works will be displayed on HD large-scale screens and projectors as well as tablets. Limited digital and print editions of the works will be available for purchase.

Set up to promote digital fine art globally, the Lumen Prize Exhibition, after London, will also travel to venues and galleries in Latvia, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Cardiff as part of its first worldwide tour.

“We were stunned by the quality of work, which the Jury Panel selected for this exhibition, as well as the incredible range of nationalities represented,” says Lumen Prize CEO, Carla Rapoport. Artists selected for the Exhibition come from 13 countries – including Iran, Pakistan, Israel and China.

The Lumen Prize Exhibition has been organized by a group of professionals with experience from British Museum, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York University, and The Financial Times. Special advisors include Lord Stevenson, former Chancellor of the University of the Arts and the Jury Panel includes Gordon Young, prize-winning UK artist and Ivor Davies, President of the Royal Cambrian Academy. The prize’s supporters include the City of Cardiff, Nomad Brush and Ricoh.

Proceeds from the competition, after costs, are being donated to support the vital work of Peace Direct, a global charity that supports local peace builders in conflict zones worldwide.
