HISTORY

ART VISION is a competition of projection mapping and VJing attracting professionals and aspiring artists from all over the world. The competition is annuallly held as part of the Circle of Light Moscow International Festival.

In 2012 the first ever ART VISION Competition was held between the Russian contestants only.  The third competition was entered by 35 artists from 13 countries.

2014 became a turning point for the International event; three nominations were introduced: Classic, Modern and VJing. All three were shown at VDNKH park known to be one of the largest and most popular parks in Moscow. The judging panel welcomed International praised designers, artists, VJs and persona. That milestone year contestants from 24 countries applied to the competition.

In 2015 ART VISION celebrated its fifth anniversary by showing the Classic entries on the world known Bolshoi theater. The other two nominations were kept at VDNKH. That year the judging panel was chaired by Patrick Woodroffe, English lighting designer who lit the Olympics in London, worked with Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones and many others.

In next 2016 ART VISION introduced a new turn on VJ battle – it was held at an indoor venue for the first time. Izvestiya Hall capable of holding 3000 people at a time was crowded by festival goers while VJs were skillfully mixing videos on a 12 meter wide LED screen. That was the first time when VJs performed along a live DJ set. DJ DIASS from Bulgary was invited to set groove of the battle.

For the first time the Competition venue united three buildings, thus only five finalists of Classic Nomination 2018 demonstrated their works created the 270-degree video projection on the facades of Bolshoi, Maly and Russian Academic Youth Theatre.

As for 2019…be sure that organizers never cease to surprise!
