[Sponsored Listing] Independent & Image Art Space (Chongqing, China) announces a call for artists for an online exhibition open call with the theme of “Rewrite Reality”. Our lives are being rewritten almost every day. All kinds of inventions and new technologies are rapidly produced on a daily basis and are continuously applied to human life. It is even more obvious now when the pandemic continues to spread. As many people have to stay at home, virtual experiences such as online shopping, online chatting, and video conferencing become a major life trend quickly, giving resolutions to people’s problems. The vaccination that we call for is becoming a reality in 2021, bringing hope to overcome the disease.
Can the rewriting of these lifestyles make human beings happier? How does our mind adapt to the life that is constantly being rewritten? Faced with the continually changing world, will the expectations for the future be rewritten accordingly? Under the expectation-satisfaction cycle, can human beings be truly satisfied, or just live as an insatiable desire machine?
Deadline: 10 Mar 2021
There is no limit on the art medium, size, year of production, artist age, or nationality, but the submitted works should respond to the exhibition theme “Rewrite Reality”.

About CICA Museum
Started from the sculptor Czong Ho Kim’s studio in 1994, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) became a unique cultural space founded and cultivated by artists. Czong Ho Kim has designed and built the art complex with a distinctive style, consisting of five buildings in Gimpo, Korea. In the 1990s, Gimpo used to be a rural area famous for rice farming, which has now transformed into a satellite city of Seoul with a fast-growing population. Meanwhile, the area around CICA Museum has developed into an industrial complex.
While the city drastically transformed, Kim dedicated over 25 years of his life cultivating this art complex. Kim has considered living space as an extension of his art practice; therefore, many details from his architecture, including interweaving angles of windows, roofs, walls, and a restrained yet functional style of stair railings and facades, were designed and finished by him. Kim designed the CICA Garden, where you will find several on-site sculptures blended into the space. Unlike many modern architecture designed and built in a short period of time, this unique art complex bears 25 years of consistent endeavors of an individual artist and his team.
CICA Museum Exhibitions and Publications
Since 2014, CICA Museum has networked with over 4,000 international artists while organizing experimental publications and international exhibitions including the CICA international exhibition and publication on New Media Art, Art Yellow Book, and Artist Statement. To overcome uniform dissemination of contemporary art from the “center of art,” CICA aims to introduce local artists and cultures from different regions to global audiences and connect them with each other.
In 2017, CICA Museum formed the CICA New Media Art Conference (CICA NMAC) which has become an annual conference. For CICA NMAC, CICA Museum collaborated with Gimpo City in 2017, Anyang City Cultural and Art Foundation in 2018, and Seoul National University in 2019. CICA Museum organized “Art Teleported,” the Art Show and Conference for Nomad Artists, held in New York in 2019 and 2020. Through exhibitions, publications, conferences, and diverse experimental platforms, CICA hopes to create a global network among local artists, designers, audiences, and communities so that they can make, appreciate, and live in art in their regions and cultures.
