Presentation Title:

  • Action Agenda: Vancouver’s Prescient Media Arts

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Beginning in the 1960s Vancouver’s hyper active media art scene was a hotbed of experimentation, collaboration, technical play and radical engagement, with a proliferation of organizations engaged with media art. Contributions to the scene included feminist collectives, artists’ cable television, artist-run media arts centres, university labs and programs, electronic art exhibitions and more. This talk will excavate formations, institutions, actions and activism and point to their relevance in our complex times.
