We invite artists, scholars, and researchers worldwide to participate in the International Symposium for Visual Culture 2022. The community of artists, researchers and academics meets in the international symposium and participates in the exhibition at the CICA Museum. The symposium will be held both onsite and virtually due to global uncertainty.

ISVC is an international platform for diverse and critical perspectives on visual culture. Through ISVC, we aim to create a global network of researchers/artists and consumers/makers of visual culture, and foster critical thoughts and in-depth understanding of visual culture on a global scale.

Participating artists and researchers will be featured in the book “New Media Art 2023.” The book “New Media Art 2023” is expected to be released in full-color paperback and ebook in December 2022. The article may include any form of text (e.g., interview, essay, poetry) in English, drawings, and pictures that introduces the artists’ works.
