- Panel n#1: Digital Creation and Contemporary Art: “L’art numérique n’existe pas”?

What is the meaning of “digital art” in 2018? What is its position vis-à-vis contemporary art? Is digital art –whether evolutive, generative, or virtual – a true interrogation of the status of the artwork? What issues are raised by works with digital components when we choose to place these works in museums or collections?

Guests: Gilles Alvarez (Biennale NEMO - FR) / Irini Papadimitriou (V&A Digital Design Weekend - UK)  / Margit Rosen (ZKM, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien - DE) / Kate Mondloch (University of Oregon - US)
Moderator: Dominique Moulon – Critic and independent curator (FR)

> 2:15PM - 3:45PM

- Panel n#2: Producing Contemporary Digital Arts 

In the past ten years, exhibitors and other cultural organizations have played a crucial role in sup- porting artistic creation by aiding artists in new productions. How can this support for creation be not only continued but improved?

Guests: David Dronet (Festival ]interstice[ - FR) / Doo Eun Choi (curator for Mediacity Seoul and ZERO1 Biennial - KR/US) / Bernard Gilbert (Le Diamant - QC-CA) / Yvan Le Bras (Electroni[k] - FR)

> 4:00PM - 5:30PM

- Panel n#3: Contemporary art and economic strategies

Contemporary art poses new questions while continuing to subvert the codes and values of the art world. Much like other genres of artwork, such as conceptual art and land art, digital works have caused the art market to rethink its strategies.

Guests: Sylvia Andriantsimahavandy (HIVE: thecamp - FR) / Anne-Cécile Worms (Art Jaws - FR) / Valentina Peri (Galerie Charlot - FR) / Shauna Jean Doherty (InterAccess - ON-CA) / Alex Czetwertynski (Festival Day for Nigth - US)
