Eleven renowned media arts institutions from all over Europe – from FACT in Liverpool and LABoral in Gijón to Onassis Stegi in Athens and RIXC in Riga – have joined forces and with the generous support of the EU’s Creative Europe Programme and created the European Media Art Platform (EMAP). The programme supports emerging European media artists with a grant to produce new work, and residency programmes at a host institution with access to their facilities and in-house expertise. The European Media Art Platform offers EMARE (European Media Artist in Residence Exchange) residencies for artists working in the fields of digital media.
Over the last two years, the success of the initiative can be demonstrated through high quality exhibitions, and EMAP alumni winning numerous accolades. Last year’s artists in residence Karen Lancel and Hermen Maat have been awarded by the Global AI ART Competition of the Tsinghua University; Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee won the Eurimages Lab Project Award at the film festival in Karovy Vary; Anna Ridler’s work MOSAIC VIRUSreceived an honorary mention at Ars Electronica 2018, and was also shown at the prestigious Barbican in London this year.
