Current Transmissions is a week-long exhibition of new work in audio, moving image, and interactive media. The featured artists – including EOP Member Soohyun Choi – were selected to make new work for broadcast from two open calls.

Two years on from the ICA’s first Current Transmissions showcase, which took place in February 2020, and featured work commissioned in the first year of the project, this second showcase includes a wealth of newly commissioned audio, moving-image, and interactive work, crossing multiple genres and reflecting the new and innovative ideas of the next generation of creative thinkers.

The commissioned works were produced and supported by the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) with partners Chisenhale Gallery, Dazed Media, NTS, SPACE, the Visible Institute at Kingston School of Art, and Werkflow.


The works are the culmination of a partnership with BBC Arts as part of New Creatives, a national talent development scheme co-funded by BBC Arts and Arts Council England; dedicated to supporting emerging artists creating innovative works for broadcast that reflect the diversity of contemporary life in Britain.
