iMapp Bucharest takes place on September 18th, 2021, in Constitution Square
The wait is over! THE INTERNATIONAL VIDEO MAPPING COMPETITION IMAPP BUCHAREST – WINNERS LEAGUE, organized by CREART – Centre for Creation, Art and Tradition of Bucharest Municipality, takes place on September 18th, 2021, in Constitution Square (Bucharest, Romania), the artistic works of the participating teams being projected on the highest surface in the world – the façade of the Palace of Parliament (23,000 sqm).
The 7th edition of the event, winner of the “AV IN ACTION” category at the AV AWARDS in London 2020, celebrates the way people gradually resume their lives, the theme of the video mapping contest – “THE SHOW MUST GO ON” – presenting domains of impact in contemporary society, that have the ability to reinvent themselves and ensure the effervescence and dynamism of a life that we have all missed so much. Thus, the proposed theme intends to provide moments of reflection and debate on the resettlement of these vital domains and their relationship with the public after a year in which the world seemed to have stopped.
Through a partnership with five of the most important international video mapping festivals in the world, iMapp Bucharest will bring together, in the Capital of Romania, the best video mapping artists, winners of the partner events, who will reinterpret the façade of the Palace of Parliament through works of art that use sound, technology and music to render one’s own vision of the theme. The five teams will be joined in the competition by the winning team of the Jury Award of iMapp Bucharest 2019 edition.
The invited artists will meditate on the impact of the pandemic on the vital aspects of society, on the virtual experiment we all witnessed in 2020 and its limits, but especially on the way we choose to continue. Art, music, sports, education, tourism and life in general must continue and will undoubtedly continue. The 6 major categories listed will be interpreted in the visual work of each artist, distinctly and originally.
See you on September 18th in Constitution Square to celebrate the artistic and cultural life of our city! We invite you to iMapp Bucharest Facebook and Instagram pages, where we will keep you posted on updates from the event! Free Entry.
