Making Art 4.0 is an idea by Scan And Make (, a young and innovative startup based in Liverpool, UK.

Scan And Make aims to promote the use of computer controlled technologies like 3D Printing, CNC Milling, Laser cutting and others to a wider audience, enabling them to emerge from the techie bubble where they are now trapped.

The idea behind the contest and the exhibition is to stimulate the creativity of the international art community and to push the usage of the above mentioned techniques.

After our first foray in the art world, with our successful Liverpool Exhibition earlier this year, we have decided to bring Making Art 4.0 to the States, specifically in San Francisco, California

All the art displayed, as in last edition, has got a peculiarity: reproducibility.
Scan And Make’s mission is to create a new front in the Art Market, by applying the same revolution that happened to the distribution of music and books (with the arrival of digital distribution platforms) to the art world.

There is a first prize of $3000 for the piece with most votes by the audience, and the selected pieces will be exhibited in the Fort Mason Firehouse in San Francisco from April 26 to 6 May 2018.
