The ICA and Dr. Martens team up for this year’s edition of Image Behaviour
The global pandemic has wreaked havoc across the cultural sector – closing organisations and venues, and drastically reducing opportunities for artists. The Institute of Contemporary Arts & Dr. Martens have teamed up to counteract this challenging environment by presenting artists living and working in the UK with this meaningful support at a time when it is needed most.
United by a shared commitment to emerging artists, they are joining forces to award £60,000 in production grants for new commissions in artists’ moving image and film. A total of seven grants will be awarded for the production of new works as part of Image Behaviour 2021, the ICA’s annual convening dedicated to experiments in artists’ moving image. Artists awarded these grants will then present their new works as part of Image Behaviour 2021, as well as through Dr. Martens’ digital platforms and on Cinema 3, the ICA’s new online platform.
In support of the project we have partnered with the ICA to rollout a poster campaign to build awareness around the open call, this will be followed up with a street gallery to showcase the winning entries later this year.
