Announcing An Open Call and Hosts for PULSE PLAY

PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is thrilled to announce an open call for submissions for PLAY at Miami Beach 2017. PLAY is PULSE's dedicated showcase for video and new media, serving as a platform at the fair to encourage discovery within the digital realm. Jasmine Wahi and Rebecca Pauline Jampol, Co-Founders and Directors of Project For Empty Space, will return as this year's curators. In October, Wahi and Jampol will host a month-long collaborative exhibition at Project for Empty Space showcasing the 2017 PLAY selections. This exhibition underscores PULSE's longstanding commitment to exploration both inside and beyond the fair setting, and creates an additional platform from which the selected works can be viewed.
