CIRCA and Dazed present the Class of 2021.


This September, all 30 artists - the CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2021 - will see their work join the CIRCA public art programme and appear daily on London's Piccadilly Lights, Seoul’s Coex K-Pop Square and at Tokyo's Yunika Vision. Alongside having their work and stories platformed to a global audience of millions.

After receiving 2,000 applications, 700 submitted artworks and watching 30 hours of best-in-class film making CIRCA and Dazed present the 30 artists who will become the CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2021. The public call out for the inaugural CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2021 asked audiences to respond to the theme ‘Communion’ with a two and a half minute film.

Expanding on their commitment to support the talent of tomorrow, CIRCA and Dazed have appointed a jury that represents the length and breadth of the international creative community featuring some of the world’s most important creative leaders across art, design, film, photography, music, movement, fashion and culture including Cauleen Smith, Jefferson Hack, Josef O'Connor, Frank Lebon, Hugo Comte, Simone Rocha, Dexter Navy, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Ib Kamara, Priya Ahluwalia, Caleb Femi, Lawrence Lek, Sabine Getty and Jenn Nkiru.

One lucky finalist will be selected by Marina Abramović to receive the #CIRCAECONOMY cash prize of £30,000. Generated from the sale of affordable prints by CIRCA artists including Patti Smith, Ai Weiwei and David Hockney, #CIRCAECONOMY profits are circulated back into helping build an economy that commissions new public art in our communities, nurtures more diverse cultural industries, and supports emerging creative potential.

The CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2021 was co-created by CIRCA and Dazed to spotlight and support the next generation of artists working in moving-image. With public art spaces diminishing, investment in arts education being cut and artist communities at risk, the joint initiative aims to empower youth through creativity and platform new voices and points of view from local communities on a global level, giving them unrivalled media exposure and access to CIRCA and Dazed’s combined networks.
