Pulse Contemporary Art Fair, generally one of the better art fairs in Miami during its big annual art fair week in the first week of Decemebr, has a dedicated platform for new media and video art called Play. In an unusual move, this year non-exhibitors can submit work though an open call, and a couple of curators can take a look and decide “in or out.” Is this really any better than the conventional way for your work to show up in Miami (through a gallery)? Maybe. Depends on how you feel about curators.
Curators Jasmine Wahi and Rebecca Jampol are co-founders of Newark’s Gateway Project Spaces “and its non-profit gallery Project for Empty Space. Their collaboration with PULSE is a continuation of their curatorial practice which has received accolades for actively cultivating and pushing forward strong multi-disciplinary art from around the world.”
They are looking for ” conceptually strong, aesthetically solid, and technically sound video and new media work.” Works selected will first show at Gateway Project Spaces, then Pulse, and Pulse itself will make “snippets” of selected works available to view online.
