Musee d’Art Moderne

Hypersalon @ MAM, Dec 17 + 19

15 December 2015

The Hypersalon™, conference returns for its second iteration in Paris, running at the Musée d’Art Moderne on December 17 and December 19.

The event, organised by Philippe Riss of XPO Gallery and Mathieu Merlet-Briand, explores the implications of networked culture and runs in conjunction with the Musée d’Art Moderne’s current Co-Workers exhibition.

The conference brings Gregory Chatonsky with ‘Deep Dream: Does the network dream of humans?’ (which takes the 2015 Google release of fantastical images of fish and dogs as its starting point for the exploration of network memory and our “hallucinatory vision of the human world”) on December 17 and a conversation with Christiane Paul and Clément Valla called ‘New Materialities of Digital Art’ on December 19.
