New Platform for Nomadic Artists in the Changing Global Art Scenes
Leejin Kim, the art director of CICA Museum, known for featuring experimental and new media art worldwide, curated this event to suggest a new platform for nomadic artists in the global art scenes. Through Project Art Teleported, CICA Museum aims to create a global network among nomadic artists, designers, audiences, and communities and promote culture of fluidity and flexibility. CICA Museum believes that we can make, share, appreciate, and live in art in any regions and cultures by understanding and appreciation of each other. The art director, Leejin Kim, added that, “many artists, including me, have multicultural experiences and also have experienced new media culture. We often feel that we don’t fall into a specific identity. Rather, it becomes more like a hybrid. We are living in rapidly changing new media culture, and sometimes we can relate ourselves more to someone who is from halfway around the world than someone next door. It would be wonderful if we meet and do something exciting anywhere.”

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. Since 1994, Czong Ho Kim has designed and built the art complex with a distinctive style, consisting of five buildings in Gimpo, the satellite city of Seoul. CICA Museum has organized diverse experimental publication & international exhibition series including the CICA international exhibition & publication on New Media Art, Art Yellow Book, and Artist Statement. In 2017, CICA Museum formed the CICA New Media Art Conference (CICA NMAC) with collaboration of Gimpo City and it became the annual conference since then.
