 COMPOSITE #39 

 CALL FOR PROJECTS 

ELEKTRA, la Compagnie Invisible and Arsenal art contemporain are pleased to welcome Composite #39.

COMPOSITE is a quarterly networking event dedicated to digital creativity. It was born from an initiative of the Conseil des arts de Montréal, and is coordinated by MAPP_MTL in collaboration with important actors of the Montreal digital scene. This event aims to create a recurrent meeting space between the art and industry of the digital sector, by encouraging the meeting and pollination between creators, artist-run centers, organizations, companies and digital professionals.

This 39th edition of COMPOSITE takes place within the framework of the 14th edition of MIAN (Marché International de l'Art Numérique). MIAN is a series of professional days organized by ELEKTRA since 2007 to facilitate exchanges between key players in the international digital art and culture ecosystem. On June 20 and 21, 2024, the 14th edition of MIAN presents a series of discussions, panels and performances as part of the ELEKTRA Biennial, a major exhibition entirely dedicated to contemporary digital art, held from May 31 to July 21, 2024 at Arsenal art contemporain Montréal. For this 7th Biennale, twenty artists from three continents address the theme ILLUSION, a reflection on our post-factual, post-truth and alternative reality era.

Each COMPOSITE event follows the same structure. A minute of announcement and inspiration introduces the evening: 10 digital actors each have one minute to share an important announcement for the digital creation sector or a project that inspired them. This is followed by 6 keynote presentations, each lasting 6 minutes, of projects previously selected by the COMPOSITE committee through a call for participants. They can be from the art, industry or social innovation sectors; the common thread is their ability to inspire, stimulate innovation and awaken in the audience a desire for discovery and exploration.

The event concludes with an evening of networking and discussion, allowing both presenters and participants to network and build on each other's projects.
