This ad is for a good cause: The latest DisCrit competition, which, this year is only open to anyone born in 1989 or later. That means anyone younger than Rihanna can enter. Jealous? Think this generation gets everything? Don't worry, they feel quite the opposite, which makes their drive all the more impressive. Maybe you wouldn't want to compete with one of these kids for an art prize, anyway: for today's youth, even the art world is all business.
Here's the press release:
"DIS Magazine is partnering with 89plus and Serpentine Gallery on a global art challenge: DIScrit 89plus! We are looking for artists and innovators #YoungerThanRihanna.
There's one rule: You must be 89plus—born in 1989 or later.
Two new grants of €15,000 each: the Re Rebaudengo Serpentine Grants, will be awarded to entrants; one by international jury, and one by popular vote.
Open for submissions July 8th - August 15th."
