Congratulations to our Open Call Winners! 


Graphic, gritty, with a lingering beauty that digs under your skin. Our 3rd Ward Open Call judges were awestruck by the socially-engaged work of Maurice Mbikayi, whose mixed media works combine history, technology and identity with a rare intelligence and wit.

Based in Cape Town, Mbikaya draws his inspiration from provocative socio-political boundaries. The result is an eclectic body of work consisting of paper, large-scale installations and site-specific performances. His work has been critically acclaimed by the art community in South Africa, and now Mbiyaki will bring his exhilarating vision to 3rd Ward.

CLICK HERE to see Mbiyaki's full portfolio and stay tuned for news on Mbiyaki’s 3rd Ward residency and solo gallery show, which will incorporate installation and performance specifically created for 3rd Ward.

Early Entry Deadline Winner: Mark Ingham 

Also, congratulations to Early Entry Deadline Winner, Mark Ingham, whose ambitious video installation caught the eye of our judging panel with its inventive use of homemade projectors and audience participation.

... And Our Top 25
