A Global
Art Challenge

July 8th – August 15th 2013

DIScrit 89plus is closed for submissions.

DIS Magazine teamed up with 89plus to present DIScrit 89plus and the launch of two Grants to support the best international creative practices: the Re Rebaudengo Serpentine Grants. These Grants, unique world-wide, will be dedicated to introducing 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.

Hosted on Dis Magazine, DIScrit 89plus offers visionaries #YoungerThanRihanna the opportunity to present their work to critics, curators, and peers. Create a profile and upload work, or just browse the applicants. Grants will be awarded by an international jury and a popular vote! Click the + sign to nominate an artist for the popular vote award.

There is only one rule: entrants must be 89plus – born in or after 1989.

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 introducing 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.

89plus is a long-term, international, multi-platform research project co-founded by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist. It is conceived as a mapping of the generation born in or after 1989. Without forecasting artistic trends or predicting future creation, 89plus manifests itself through panels, books, periodicals and exhibitions, bringing together individuals from a generation whose voices are only starting to be heard, yet which makes up almost half of the world's population. 89plus is supported by DLD logo – Digital, Life, Design.

DIS Magazine is a digital media platform. It’s on and offline projects examine art, fashion, music, and culture, constructing and supporting new creative practices. Working collaboratively with artists, writers, photographers, musicians, and designers, DIS Magazine facilitates projects for the most public and democratic of all forums – the Internet.

The Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is an Italian contemporary art foundation based in Turin, which has been producing and showing from as early as 1995 the work of artists who have since gone on to become internationally acclaimed, such as Doug Aitken, Maurizio Cattelan, Urs Fischer, Damien Hirst, and Shirin Neshat. Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo has a wide-ranging programme of activities and events that are organised in parallel and in response to the exhibitions.

The Serpentine Gallery is one of Britain's best loved galleries, attracting up to 1.2 million visitors in any one year to its world-famous Exhibition, Architecture, Design, Education and Public Programmes, providing learning through art for people of all ages and backgrounds. The 89plus Marathon will be the eighth in the Serpentine Gallery's annual Marathon series, an ambitious event that brings together the fields of art, culture, science and technology.
