 Premio a Las Artes
 Faena Art District

 Call for Entries -- New Projects in All Media

 The Award
 LEA (Laboratory for Artistic Experimentation) announces the second
edition of its prize for the arts. The competition is open to all
Latin American artists and its aim is to enable the production of two
unique works especially conceived for the "Los Molinos" building of
Buenos Aires, a building of historical significance and the future
home of the Faena Foundation.

 We are looking for artistic projects that interact with the space,
the history of the building and/or with the urban context in which it
is located, in a manner that is novel, intelligent, and poetic.

 The projects may include installations, sculptures, drawings or
paintings, videos, new media, sound, or any of their combinations. A
portion of the prize will finance the production of the works in this
rare opportunity to realize large-scale artistic projects.

 Characteristics of the Space:
 See PDF files and Word document links on website for:
 • Plans and photos of the space
 • Plans and photos of the neighborhood and its relationship to the city
 • History of the building
 • Current state of the building

 First Prize 100,000 dollars Argentine pesos (approx. USD 32,000)
 Second Prize 50,0000 dollars Argentine pesos (approx. USD 16,000).
 (For first prize a maximum of 70,000 pesos will be used in the
realization of the work, leaving the remainder to the disposition of
the artist(s); for second prize a maximum of 35,000 pesos will be used
for the work's production, leaving the rest at the artist(s)'s
