An exhibition covering topics of socio-political, socio-economic and cultural issues, power struggles, globalism, and environmental and energy problems. Mediums include photography, 2D digital art, video art, interactive art, painting, sculpture and installation art. CICA supports “young” culture makers, who have passion, critical thought, and desire for creative and experimental expression, regardless of their age and background. We believe that our inexhaustible passion for art and expression and a reckless rebelliousness can change the world.
Since 2014, CICA Museum has networked with over 4,000 international artists while organizing experimental publications & international exhibitions including the CICA international exhibition & publication on New Media Art, Art Yellow Book, and Artist Statement. To overcome uniform dissemination of contemporary art from the “center of Art,” CICA introduces 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 & Art Foundation in 2018, and Seoul National University in 2019. CICA Museum also 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 fosters 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.
