The Hexagram network and ELEKTRA are jointly launching a call for projects for students and artist-researchers who are members of the Hexagram network. The selected projects will be part of the ELEKTRA Gallery’s programming between November 2022 and May 2023.
Since its opening in 2019, the ELEKTRA Gallery’s mandate is to create a space for aesthetic and discursive research through digital art production. Located in the heart of the Mile-End, it has become a major support and dissemination center for the artistic community. In this context, the Hexagram-ELEKTRA partnership aims to encourage exchanges between the cultural and academic communities in the field of digital arts.
The exhibition Slow Track by Timothy Thomasson [Hexagram student-member, Concordia University] on show until April 16 at ELEKTRA Gallery is a result of this programme. Also see the previous exhibition, by Juliette Lusven [Hexagram student-member, UQAM], Transatlantic Visions.
