23 Aug DELVE INTO ISEA2020 ART PROGRAMME!
Montreal, August 14, 2020 – ISEA2020 [26th International Symposium on Electronic Art] will be, from October 13 to 18, 2020.
The ISEA2020 artistic programme explores the infinitely large and the infinitely small worlds of Sentience — feeling-sensing-making sense.
Selected artists engage different phenomena, species and senses: amongst 60 artworks, a sculpture of transgender hormones carried into space (Adriana Knouf); an installation based on our collective imagination about the shape and taste of clouds (Sue Huang); a soft robotic sculpture of a cyborg oyster (Stephanie Rothenberg); an interactive performance between an artificial intelligence system and the microbes in a human’s mouth (Klaus Spiess & Lucie Strecker); and sound-based interactive installations based on the ‘hearing’ and ‘listening’ capabilities of nonhuman entities (Suzanne Kite and Devin Ronneberg), and on the world of non-hearing subjects (Hugo Solís García). The artists’ transdisciplinary investigations share a sense of urgency to rethink the relationships between sentient beings in times, spaces, and scales beyond human.
For the first time in the history of the symposium, ISEA2020 Online Montreal will be taking on the challenge of presenting in digital format artworks that were meant to be experienced in a physical venue. Each artwork will be presented on both the ISEA2020 Online platform and on a dedicated website. While we are aware that our proposed online solutions do not replace the real, embodied experience of media art, we hope the artistic programme can, in this way, enter a dialogue with the academic programme of the symposium.
While we do not encourage delegates to travel to Montreal specifically for ISEA2020, with the recent local developments in regards to some social distancing and congregation restrictions being lifted, we have decided to resume collaborations with partner organizations in Montreal. As such, a small number of artworks by local artists will be exhibited at Maison de la culture Claude-Léveillée and Maison de la culture Janine Sutto, and a programme of interventions by local artists and MAPP_MTL will be presented in public spaces. This will also be documented in the ISEA2020 Online platform and the website dedicated to the artistic programme.
