IRIDESCENCE is the cumulative exhibition of artworks produced through The Holographic Art Grant, funded by the Hologram Foundation (Paris) in partnership with Center for the Holographic Arts (New York).  Each artist selected through the international competition produces a major new holographic artwork.

Art holograms sculpt light. Each artwork creates a enchanting viewing experience where memory, motion and imagery entwine.

The Holographic Art Grant is a competitive award that recognizes outstanding artists working with holography.  The selected projects are chosen for artistic merit and originality.  The Holographic Art Grant provides production funding to enable artists to create high quality art holograms.

Surprised by how few art collectors owned holograms Hugues Souparis established the Hologram Foundation to help artists overcome production costs and make artworks available to buyers. Creating a funding pool for hologram production enables the creation of new artworks, with the goal of bringing holograms into our everyday environments.

To promote engagement with holographic artwork the Center for the Holographic Arts develops and presents exhibitions at the seasonal HoloCenter on Governors Island and other pop-up venues. Our Space:Light and Pulse Laser Holography programs support artistic experimentation with spatial and optical media. We inspire and educate with workshops that combine art, science and technology.
