SUR_EXPOSITION : DISSEMINATION OR CREATION?

Digital creation, dissemination and mediation through the new online immersive spaces.

This event is open to the public on our Youtube channel. Organized by UQAC – École NAD, Laboratoire MIMESIS and Hexagram.

The MIMESIS laboratory (École NAD-UQAC) and Hexagram present 3 lunch-meetings to bring together creators, researchers, experts and students, who will present their work and initiatives on modalities of artistic creation, dissemination, and mediation through the new virtual and immersive spaces.

Faced with the physical social distancing imposed throughout this past year, creators had to devise – often to improvise – new work processes and dissemination strategies. The (im)material conditions of production and exhibition, as well as the urgency to acquire new skills suddenly accelerated learning curves, prompted distributed collaborations, and instigated new modalities of presentation. Although digital creation is well-anchored in the landscape of Montreal’s art, cultural and creative industries, the “frame” [le cadre] of these creations is once again being probed.

During these three lunch-meetings, we will examine the new “out-of-frame” objects that emerged in the 2020-20XX context: creative works that no longer correspond to a specific genre or discipline, to a space, a type of institution or a designated audience. We will discuss digital, virtual and online interpretations of pre-existing projects, new ways for experiencing digital creations, case-studies of access and interactions enhanced by new technologies, and other forms of aesthetic experimentation.
