ICA Miami’s open call program is an initiative that highlights the production of experimental works of art, and opens the museum’s exhibitions and collection to new artists and forms. Each season ICA Miami highlights a different medium, offering an opportunity for artists at any stage of their careers to present work at the museum.
For the 2015 edition of Open Call, ICA Miami invites artists to submit original and engaging works of digital and web-based art. Digital art circumvents the traditional dominance of the gallery and museum system, delivering new forms of aesthetic experience while inquiring into contemporary systems of vision and distribution. Works by ten finalists will be presented at the museum in August 2015, with one work acquired for the museum’s permanent collection.
