The Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture, and Technology in Montreal/Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang is delighted to invite you to our annual members’ exhibition. This event will unfold from September 25 – 29, 2023, at Concordia’s 4th Space. This year, our diverse community of students and faculty members will present their research and research-creation works through the thematic lens of “The Commons”.
The theme “The Commons” encourages exploration of shared resources and spaces that are accessible to all members of a community or society. This concept has been interpreted through a range of creative and research practices by our contributors. The exhibition hopes to delve into the many facets of The Commons, illustrating its potential as a catalyst for creativity, collaboration and social change.
Key themes woven throughout the exhibition’s works include our relationship with machines, the intersections of technology, ecology, and human existence, recent developments in artificial intelligence and collective creation, a critical examination of the internet as a digital commons, and the dynamics of access to public spaces. Additional themes encompass the use of craft as a tool for commoning, sustainable crafts, embodied virtual experiences, exploration of urban narratives and systemic issues, and inquiries regarding inclusion and accessibility.
The mediums used in these projects are diverse, encompassing digital and analog games, interactive installations, multimedia and multi-channel video installations, sound installations, textile art, VR experiences, photography, and documentary film.
Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate the year-end exhibition “The Commons” at the 4th Concordia Space from September 25-29, 2023. Stay tuned for upcoming details on featured artists and researchers!
