Art +Tech

This is an annual award specially set up for Chinese youth curators to help Chinese curators express their views on the international stage. It is also an effective training platform to inspire young people with dreams from various fields.

Introducing the Hyundai Blue Prize

As one of the key projects of Hyundai Motorstudio Beijing, the Hyundai Blue Prize embodies the dream of people to innovate and enjoy life. It is a completely open multi-disciplinary experimental art platform specially established for China. The Prize are dedicated to innovative curatorial talents that have a diverse mindset and can present unique insights into contemporary Chinese social phenomena and issues. Different from other Chinese art awards, the Hyundai Blue Prize breaks from the traditional methods of judging by research field. In addition to inviting senior judges from various fields, such as art and design at home and abroad, the audience and media industry representatives will also get involved in the judging process, which will create a new model for all to discuss art, innovation and technology. In addition, the Hyundai Blue Prize is a pioneering force that continues to focus on the development of Chinese youth curators. Apart from organizing exhibitions for the winners, the Prize also enhances international exchanges and offers a chance for them to study at world-class art institutions.


Hyundai Blue Prize Art+Tech

Hyundai Blue Prize Art+Tech aims not only to discover talents, but also to enable them to develop, display and position themselves (to give full scope to the talents), so that they can be at the heart of the creative and innovative network that links art and technology to social responsibility. This is an award focusing on guidance and communication, aiming to provide winners with a platform, a group and indispensable time to actively develop and review their projects through conversation, research, observation and criticism.

“Disruptive Futures”

The Hyundai Blue Prize Art+Tech 2022 will engage the theme of “Disruptive Futures.” The prize will continue to engage sustainability and diversity in order to foster a global discussion concerning our shared future. Through art practice we intend to create a collective discussion on the forms of planetary scale action and types of technology that need to be created in order to insure a more equitable, healthy, and resilient future.

The Hyundai Blue Prize Art+Tech 2022 is seeking curators and humanists to reflect upon the urgency of the present and to rethink the role of disruptive technologies in order to envision our possible futures.
