The Salon Video Art Prize

Due to a lack of support for Video artists Matt Roberts Arts has spent the last 8 months developing a new art prize concentrating on showcasing new media work.

The Salon Video Art Prize is the 4th open submission exhibition organised by Matt Roberts Arts since 2007, as part of a long term commitment to increasing opportunities and exposure for early – mid career artists. The Video Art Prize will be selected by Mike Sperlinger (Assistant Director - Lux), and Zineb Sedira (artist working in Photography, and Video) and will include 40 - 50 artists working in video, video installation, animation and experimental film.

The exhibition will take place at Matt Robert Arts Project Space, on Vyner Street, in East London, opening on Thursday 4th March, 2010. There is a selectors' prize of £800(GBP) for a chosen exhibitor, and the exhibition is likely to receive over 1000 visitors including national and international critics, curators and collectors.

The deadline for DVD submissions is 5pm, Saturday 23rd January, 2010. If you would like to know more please visit or email
