PULSE Contemporary Art Fair announces its PLAY Curators for Miami Beach 2016
Works selected for PLAY will debut in a pre-fair collaborative exhibition at Gateway this fall and live onsite in a dedicated exhibition at PULSE Miami Beach in December.

NEW YORK, NY.- PULSE Contemporary Art Fair announced its Miami Beach 2016 PLAY curators and an open call for video and digital art submissions, marking the first time in the history of PLAY that entries have been extended to non-exhibitors.​ PLAY serves as a platform for discovery within the digital realm and is a dedicated program for video and new media works. The new open call will allow a broad range of artists the opportunity to submit video and digital art for consideration ultimately resulting in a diverse and dynamic range of works for curatorial review.

Jasmine Wahi and Rebecca Jampol, Co-Founders and Directors of Gateway Project Spaces and its non-profit gallery Project for Empty Space, will curate PLAY along with reviewing and adjudicating all submissions. Wahi and Jampol jointly run Gateway, which is a highly competitive residency program, and the gallery in a 50,000 square-foot hub for creative engagement located in Newark. Celebrated as cultural leaders and influencers, they have played pivotal roles in the development and expansion of Newark’s growing art community. Their collaboration with PULSE Miami Beach is a continuation of their curatorial practice which is known for actively cultivating strong multi-disciplinary art from around the world.

“We are so thrilled to be a part of PULSE Miami Beach and to extend our curatorial enthusiasm through PLAY,” stated Rebecca Jampol and Jasmine Wahi after learning of their selection. “PULSE has always brought out some of the most innovative and exciting projects, and we really admire the vision and continued elevation of strong emerging and mid-career artists and galleries. We can't wait for this collaboration, and to see all the phenomenal video submissions.”

Works selected for PLAY will debut in a pre-fair collaborative exhibition at Gateway this fall and live onsite in a dedicated exhibition at PULSE Miami Beach in December. The expanded outreach and inaugural exhibition at Gateway aims to encourage an active engagement in cutting-edge contemporary artistic practice and is born from PULSE’s longstanding commitment to discovery. “We are happy to introduce a new open call for PLAY and to cast a wider net so that the curators will be able to capture eclectic works unified by their chosen theme,” stated Helen Toomer, Director of PULSE Contemporary Art Fair. “The collaborative exhibitions at Gateway Project Spaces and PULSE Miami Beach are an exciting start to our newly developed year-round programming aimed at broadening the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair presence in burgeoning art communities around the world.”

Submissions for PLAY are now being accepted. Artists and galleries are asked to refer one or two pieces of video work to be considered.
