ICA Miami Digital Commissions 2020–21: …what endures…

Nov 30, 2021 – Mar 27, 2022
ICA Miami Digital Commissions 2020–21: …what endures…

In Spring 2020, in response to the global pandemic and the resulting shutdown of our physical galleries, ICA Miami initiated a series of digital commissions to stimulate and support artistic production in Miami and beyond. The resulting works were conceived independently by sixteen invited artists, yet this unprecedented moment provides a rich and urgent context in which to ask how we connect to the works and to one another. Collectively, these works engage with themes of identity, community, social justice, and a changing natural environment.

The first series debuted in April 2020 featuring artists Cristine Brache, Terence Price II, Faren Humes, Domingo Castillo, Aramis Gutierrez, Tara Elizabeth Long, GeoVanna Gonzalez, and Deirdre Keough for the Institute of Queer Ecology. The second series debuted in May 2021 featuring Sable Elyse Smith, Houston Cypress, Minia Biabiany, Dara Friedman, Sky Hopinka, Franky Cruz, A.S.T., and Rehana Zaman.

All videos are available now on the ICA Channel.

This exhibition is organized by ICA Miami and curated by Stephanie Seidel, Curator, and Gean Moreno, Director, Knight Foundation Art + Research Center.
