Call for Artworks


ACM Multimedia 2013 will host the 10th edition of the Interactive Arts Programme. The associated Multimedia Art exhibition will showcase digital arts installations including mixed-reality art, game-based art, enhanced performances, sound-based installations, tangible interfaces, and those featuring mobile and social media.

The exhibition will run throughout the conference with an additional event open to the general public to maximise exposure of the artworks.

We welcome two categories of artwork: previously developed installations that rely on advanced multimedia or multimodal technologies, and original creations exploring new concepts and ideas. All artworks are expected to feature significant digital media components or multimodal interfaces. Installations associated to an Art, Entertainment and Culture technical paper are especially welcome. However, selection for the exhibition will be based primarily on artistic merit and the potential to engage the conference audience as well as the general public.

Technical demonstrations that only use media content for illustrative purposes without a clear artistic intention should be directed to the respective demo sessions rather than the Multimedia Art exhibition.

Applications should include a short (4 pages) description of the artistic brief as well as the technical elements of the installation, following the ACM Multimedia format for short papers (available here). Papers need not be anonymous and should be submitted via e-mail directly to the Arts, Entertainment and Culture Track Chairs.
Supplementary material (audio, video, exhibitions leaflets and brochures) should be provided through a web link when available. Artworks that have not been previously on display are expected to be at an advanced stage of completion by the submission date. Enquiries or requests for clarification should be directed to the Arts, Entertainment and Culture Track Chairs.

Selection of artworks will be carried out by the track chairs assisted by local organisers and members of the programme committee. Criteria for selection will include:

  • Originality of the artistic concept, aesthetic and/or critical quality
  • Interactivity and/or richness of the media content
  • Relevance to ACM Multimedia in terms of content and technologies deployed
  • Robustness and transportability of the installation
