Ariane Plante Claudine Hubert Light Shadows

Date(s): Mar 24 to Apr 14 2019

Residency

Petro, 2018 and A. Plante, 2015

M&M Residency in Mexico

In collaboration with Laboratorio de Arte Alameda and the Conseil des arts de Montréal

Interested in the meeting of cultures and aesthetics through the arts and new media, and motivated by the idea of creating and consolidating artistic relations between Quebec and Mexico, two regions of North America where digital and media arts are particularly dynamic and prolific, we hope to initiate our research and development of a project for presentation in the public spaces of both countries (and elsewhere!). Entitled Light Shadows, it will bring together installations and installation performances designed for outdoor presentations. At this point, we imagine creating a itinerary of works that, through the digital technologies they use, their space and their artistic intentions, will highlight the highly frequented outdoor urban spaces, offering a renewed look at media art for the public space, a counter-point to the design and entertainment projects that are increasingly common in our cities.
