The X + 1 concept project is diving into the world of net art and staying there until 2am, running at Canada’s Musée D’Art Contemporain de Montréal on February 20.
Running from 5pm until 2am on February 20, the Montreal museum will be converted into an all-hands-on-deck net art party. From expositions – three in total: Sophie Calle‘s Pour la dernière et pour la première fois, Simon Starling‘s Métamorphologie and The Forgotten Space by Allan Sekula and Noël Burch of Série Projections – to performances, DJ sets and guided tours, the night is drawing together a lot of different medium all, in effect, exploring one – the vast world of the internet.
The performances take on the role of networking and exchange activities, creations by artists “transcribed into a single immersive visual experience”. The initiators of the project – Erin Gee, Benoit Palop, Sabrina Ratté and Tristan Stevens – have all invited artists from their own personal networks who have, in turn, invited another (hence the designator X + 1) culminating in performances by Ratté and Roger Tellier-Craig followed by one by Gee.
