ISEA2016 Open Sky Project for ICC Tower
ISEA2016 Hong Kong in partnership with the OPEN SKY PROJECT offers an opportunity for artists to present their video projects on the 77,000 sqm of urban media screen that makes up the façade of the highest tower in Hong Kong : the ICC (484m).

As a joint collaboration between ISEA2016, Open Sky Project, ICC (Sun Hung Kai Properties) and Hong Kong Arts Development Council, the Open Call for artworks was posted in late 2015. As a result, 73 submissions from around the globe have been received and an Official selection of top 6 artists and 22 honorable mentions have been elected by an international board of expert juries through a blind review process, as follows.
