89plus Open Call for Serpentine Galleries Marathon

9 July 2013

International, multi-platform research project 89plus is calling for submissions from practitioners working across the fields of art, culture, science and technology, born in or after 1989, to be involved in Serpentine galleries’ annual Marathon series, as part of this year’s Frieze Art Fair in October.

Co-founded by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist, 89plus is conceived as a mapping of the generation of the aforementioned year, identifying it, not only as an emerging voice in the world, but a significant one considering it makes up almost half the world’s population. Born in the post-Cold War period, at the genesis of the web availability and the orbit of the first global positioning system satellite, these 24-year-olds have got a big legacy to live up to and 89plus is helping them do it. Submissions are welcome all year but the deadline for 2013 projects close on July 30.

See the Serpentine galleries website for more details. **
