Professor Janine Marchessault Speaks at Digifest

October 26th, 2011 1:40-2:25pm

Berkeley Church, 315 Queen Street East

Place, Memory and Site Specific Art Exhibitions

This talk will address new approaches to site specific art by looking at several examples that combine urban screens, large scale architectural projections, locative media and participatory art forms.  Her current research seeks to understand how such media art exhibitions create experimental communities and social excavations that redefine our sense of urban place and common purpose.

Digifest is Toronto’s international festival celebrating innovation and digital creativity. From October 26-30, we will be bringing together some of the world’s best and brightest to showcase next generation digital art & design. Established and emerging designers, technologists and artists will come together during Digifest for presentations, incredible demos, interactive exhibitions and parties.
