The open call to submit existing artworks for the next biennial’s artistic program is open until October 31, 2023.

Initiated with Lieux Publics, national center for street arts and public space, the call for projects “Creation for the public space” is intended for national and international artists to produce an original artwork using or questioning digital practices that are thought and written for the public space in various possible forms: installation, show and performance, augmented reality….

The winning artworks of this call for projects will be presented as part of the opening of the Biennial of Digital Imaginaries specifically for the Opening Nights in the public space in Aix-en-Provence.
