Ed Video Media Arts Centre in Guelph, Canada is accepting nominees for the 2017 Kenny Doren Award.
Deadline extended to Wednesday May 31st, 2017!
Kenny Doren was a Canadian media artist and composer whose practice employed musical interventions and political discourse utilizing video and performance. His art installations, videos, and digital operas have been presented in Canada, China, Finland, France, and the U.S.A. He is an Ed Video honourary lifetime member, and was a dear friend, great artist, and a champion of artist-run centres and galleries across Canada.
