IMAA is pleased to present Perspectives: a series of online written reflections from the Canadian media arts community.
In November 2016, March and April 2017, IMAA presented a series of gatherings within the Canadian media arts sector, focusing respectively on Sound Art, Analogue Film, and Digital Strategy. Each gathering took place in a different Canadian city, exchanging views and strengthening ties within these far-reaching communities, while also offering an important space for focused conversations on pressing issues faced by each sector.
With the idea to continue the discussions from the Sound Art Gathering and Analogue Film Gathering in a public format, IMAA has commissioned written reflections from several authors on a subject of their choosing with relevance to the discussions. The day of discussion on digital strategy resulted in a letter addressed to the Canada Council of the Arts, prepared by the Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques (CQAM) and IMAA. You can read the letter here.
These texts will be made available as blog posts on IMAA’s website in a new section calledPerspectives. Written reflections will be shared by a range of artists, scholars, filmmakers and arts administrators.
Mikhel Proulx is the editor of the Perspectives series. He is a researcher of digital culture and contemporary art and a PhD student and faculty member in the department of Art History at Concordia University, Montreal. He is a Canada Graduate Scholar and a Jarislowsky Foundation Doctoral Fellow in Canadian Art History. His writing has been published widely, and he has curated exhibitions across Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
This project is supported by Canada Council for the Arts.
