Diesel Wall is an international art contest that aims to bring intriguing/inspiring/insightful/inciting contemporary ideas to giant urban canvases in city centres around the world.
ART DEMOCRACY! With this idea in mind, Diesel created DIESEL WALL, a competition dedicated to young artists and designers, to offer them the opportunity to showcase their works on an extraordinary scale: monumental, freestanding vertical walls in the centres of worldâ€™s most important cities. The ultimate goal being to salvage what prominent precious public space is left. With this philosophy, Diesel created Diesel Wall 5 years ago. This year launching on March 3rd, the Diesel Wall art contest continues its tour around the world and reaches 4 new corners of the planet: Manchester (UK), Barcelona (Spain), Zurich (Switzerland) and NY (US). Any creative, inspired person from any country in the world can submit their designs for the chance to feature in this new edition of the projectâ€¦and conquer a Wall! The artists will have total freedom in sending concepts: art is above all a means of unconstrained self-expression.
Works can range from being provocative to poetical, ornamental, as well as wild and spacious, and can be created with all artistic media (painting, photography, video, performance, light, sound, text). Experimental concepts including performance and show elements are welcome.
The ultimate goal of DIESEL WALL is to create a fusion between the private space of galleries and institutions and the open space of the cityâ€¦to indicate new directions in urban surroundings, vitalize them and recharge them with positive energy.
From mid April to Mid July â€˜08 local juries will get together in order to select the Diesel Wall winners for each city.
The jury members for this year will include among others Bigas Luna, Peter Saville, Terry Jones, and Wilbert Das, Dieselâ€™s Creative Director. From May to July â€˜08, depending on each cityâ€™s Diesel Wall timeline, winners will be announced both through the web site and local events to then proceed with the setting-up of the winning installations on each Wall. Diesel Wall will take your art. Your power of dissuasion. Your ability to disrupt, incite and excite.Inspire and intrigue. Mystify and comment. Make beautiful and real. Make people think again. Artworks - conceived for a specific Wall or for all four Walls - can use painting, photography, video, performance, light, sound, text, experimental concepts including 3D, performance and show elements are also welcome.
