For ICA Miami’s inaugural Open Call, the museum invited 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. The works selected for Open Call examine the structures and operations inherent to digital media, and explore the continued importance of traditionally interactive and de-materialized work.
