The Society for Arts and Technology (SAT), the Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques (CQAM), Agence TOPO, Eastern Bloc, Labo NT2, OBORO, PRIM, Studio XX and Vidéographe are pleased to announce the 12th Labsessions event, taking place on Wednesday March 22, 2017, from 5-8 pm at the Société des arts technologiques [SAT].
Three projects were selected and each artist will do a short presentation (or demo) in front of the public and media arts professionals. Following the presentations and question periods, the partner organizations will provide constructive criticism through written commentaries and suggestions which will be sent to the artist later on.
Artists and selected projects:
Jean-Philippe Côté – Yöti
Owen Kirby – Stare Into the Fire, Listen to the Wind
Rodrigo Velasco – Astr.
In addition to the Labsessions, partner organizations might offer assistance to their sole discretion; which can take different forms depending on their respective mandate and resources (equipment loan, access to media labs, technical support, consultation or mentorship, access to an activity or a festival, etc.).
Since 2011, Labsessions aim to support emerging artists working in digital arts, and to give them the opportunity to showcase the work they do. Those events are also a networking place for artists, digital arts organizations attendees, cultural workers and the public.
