MUTEK_IMG is a forum that emphasizes visuality in the digital creation milieu and rallies both artists and professionals.
As the centrepiece of this 2nd edition, Virtual Reality (VR) is considered the next platform in experiential technology, and brings together visionary research, innovative technologists, multimedia artistic creators and adventurous production and distribution companies.
Mixing paid and free activities over 3 days at the Phi Centre, MUTEK_IMG offers an introduction to the fundamentals of VR for the general public and free access to more than twenty works of VR cinema and experience, including the travelling exhibition curated by San Francisco's Kaleidoscope.
For professionals and those interested in a deeper more comprehensive dive into VR, MUTEK_IMG offers the VR SALON, developed with Mediabiz International and presented with RPM (Regroupement des producteurs multimédia). This salon includes the KALEIDOSCOPE EVENT, and an exclusive encounter with artists involved in the MUTEK_IMG VR exhibition and a rendezvous with Montréal-based VR startups, as well as a day long conference.
As with the 1st edition of MUTEK_IMG, the rest of this year’s program embraces innovative formats of digital creation and intervention, including mapping, hacking, surveillance, interactive art art in urban space.
