The next open call, for MOP CAP 2015, will take place on the MOP CAP website from 1-31 July 2014.
The Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize (MOP CAP) is a worldwide search for the next generation of contemporary Iranian visual artists who have the potential to make a significant impact in their field. The goal of the prize is to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to gain international exposure, and to engage in artistic experimentation and cultural exchange. Through its archival material, including an online artist database and printed publications, MOP CAP aims to provide an educational interchange and contribute to the development of Iranian art and culture.
MOP CAP is open to young, emerging Iranian visual artists, living in and outside of Iran, through an online application. To view the eligibility criteria and for more information on the application process click here.
The MOP CAP Winner receives a one-year mentorship with a London-based curator resulting in a solo exhibition at a leading gallery space in London, as well as a three-month residency at The Delfina Foundation.
