Shahar Marcus has been nominated for the Discovery Award, the LOOP Barcelona initiative created with the aim to support and recognize the recent production of videos and films by international artists through a free open call to the artistic community.
This initiative is supported by Estrella Damm, who sponsors this first edition of the prize, in line with its longtime support to the cultural sector. Furthermore, the exhibition featuring the finalist projects, included in the program of LOOP Barcelona 2015,will be hosted by Estrella Damm in its Antigua Fábrica (former beer factory) in Barcelona, giving the audience the opportunity to enjoy the works in an exhibition format.
With the aim of fostering a space for the promotion of video art works, the Discovery Award also creates an online video channel, in which selected works to the second stage of the competition will be available for viewing and voting.
The Discovery Award encourages artists to participate and the public to enjoy the best international artistic creation.
