Yamal LNG is launching an international contest open to visual artists, graphic designers and architects to present a project for Yamal LNG tanks art design located in the Russian Arctic (hereinafter – the Contest).
The contestants are expected to submit their projects in a jpg format by 26 May 2017.
The four selected projects by the international jury will be used to decorate 4 tanks, over 40 meters high, built to store the LNG to be produced at the Yamal LNG’s future plant. This will be the first industrial design project ever done in the Arctic.
The award to each of the four winners will be an equivalent of 5 thousand euro.
The jury will include world-renowned experts in international and domestic contemporary art.
Curator Francesco Bonami has been appointed the head of the jury and the curator of the contest.
It is expected that the Jury will be composed of V-A-C Director Teresa Mavica, the Director of the Stockholm’s Moderna Museet Daniel Birnbaum, the Chief Curator at the Mori Art Museum Mami Kataoka and representatives of Yamal LNG’s shareholders.
According to Francesco Bonami, the project, the first ever of this kind for its scale and geographic location, should appeal to both internationally acclaimed and emerging artists, for its challenging nature and for the opportunity to create a dialogue with a unique environmental context.
