Jointly organised by the NTU Institute of Science and Technology for Humanity (NISTH) and School of Art, Design and Media (ADM), the NTU Global Digital Art Prize is a biennial competition that recognises global artists and technologists with extraordinary creativity in the field of digitally mediated art, design and cultural heritage.
The theme for NTU-GDAP 2022 is Sustainable People, Inspiring Change. Developments in science and technology have accelerated at record speed, which significantly changed living standards but, at the same time, brought in complexity demanding more resources. The recent report by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that human activities are causing changes to the climate that are “widespread, rapid, and intensifying, and unprecedented in thousands of years”. The pandemic has also intensified challenges that we are facing, such as inequality, poverty and domestic violence. It is imperative that we focus on building more equal, inclusive, and sustainable economies and societies to tackle our global challenges.
Opening from 26th November 22 till 27th January 2023, The NTU-GDAP exhibition showcases 20 shortlisted international and local works. Save the date and we’ll see you at the ADM Gallery for the presentation of the NTU Global Digital Art Prize!
