Imaginary Landscapes 1 : Awards ceremony

The Maison d’Ailleurs and the EPAC have the pleasure of inviting you to the opening and awards ceremony of the Imaginary Landscapes competition on Friday, 16th December at 7 p.m.

The International Imaginary Landscapes competition is the fruit of collaboration between the EPAC, Academy of Contemporary Arts, the Maison d'Ailleurs, Switzerland, and the ASP, Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Poland. The 700 entries, based on maps of imaginary lands, came up with fascinating landscapes as varied as the participants themselves. There were young students, tomorrow's artists, budding strip cartoon artists, painters, photographers, film animators, illustrators, and so on.

The jury selected 35 works which will be exhibited on printed panels and by projection.
