Art by Will Neibergall

DIS Magazine is partnering with 89plus and the Serpentine Gallery on a global art challenge! We are looking for artists and innovators #YoungerThanRihanna.

There’s one rule, you must be 89plus – born in 1989 or later.

Two new grants, the Re Rebaudengo Serpentine Grants, will be awarded to entrants; one by international jury, and one by popular vote. The Re Rebaudengo Serpentine Grants, unique worldwide, will be dedicated to introduce work by some of this generation’s most inspiring artists and protagonists. The Re Rebaudengo Serpentine Grants will be the first such awards to welcome submissions across disciplines: artists, writers, architects, filmmakers, musicians, designers, scientists and technologists.

DIScrit 89plus offers visionaries #YoungerThanRihanna the opportunity to present their work to critics, curators, and peers. Create a profile and upload work, or browse the DIScrit applicants.
