ISEA2015 Press release

We invite you to participate in ISEA2015 in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia from August 14-19th!  Our Early Bird registration deadline will close on July 15th, 2015, and we have a very exciting program planned.

ABOUT ISEA2015 Vancouver

20 years after its first occurrence in Montreal in 1995, the 21st International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2015) returns to Canada. Hosted by Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts + Technology, School for Contemporary Arts, and FCAT; ISEA2015 presents a rich academic program rooted in both the humanities and sciences, as well as a ground breaking art program.

ISEA2015 is a six-day symposium featuring over 450 speakers, workshops, tutorials, panels, papers and institutional presentations. It showcases over 180 artworks ranging from large-scale interactive installations to cutting-edge electronic music performances. The theme of ISEA2015—Disruption—encourages us to re-examine and re-negotiate the frontiers between academia and art, practice and theory, systems and reality, art and society.

Centered at SFU Woodward’s downtown campus, ISEA2015’s programming will overflow to venues across Metro Vancouver. Partners include local artistic organisations and venues such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, Western Front, VIVO, the Museum of Vancouver, Grunt Gallery, Vancouver New Music, 221A, New Westminster New Media Gallery, Fortune Sound Club, the New Forms Festival, and more.

ISEA2015 will explore subthemes around the potential of electronic arts to reach out into the world and effect genuine change. These subthemes includeClimate Change, Disruption and Urban Landscapes, Contemporary Curatorial Practices, Media Activism and Subversion, DIY Technology, BioArt, Sound Ecology, Embodied Art Practices, Geopolitics, and more.

To frame the discussion around the artistic, scientific, technological, and social manifestations of disruption as a cultural phenomenon, ISEA2015 will feature keynote addresses by visionaries such as Brian Massumi, Michael Connor, Dominique Moulon, Hildegard Westerkamp, and Sara Diamond. Master disruptors The Yes Men will address the symposium attendees on the use of creative expression for subversion and disruption.

Press Release ISEA2017

ISEA International is pleased to announce that ISEA2017 will be held in Manizales, Colombia. The successful bid was awarded to the Universidad de Caldas because of its extensive experience and tradition in conducting the International Image Festival and its continuous participation in various ISEA symposiums. The area is known for its involvement in the visual arts, music, and the sciences.

This decision acknowledges the importance of Latin America to the ISEA community. This event will offer a new and exciting experience to the attendees as well as provide a unique perspective into the development of Arts+Sciencies+Technology in Latin America.

The symposium, ISEA2017 Bio-creation and Peace, will be held in August 2017, in Manizales, a city that is part of the Colombian Coffee Cultural Landscape and was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. A process of political, economic, social, and cultural transformation is taking place in Colombia and the peace process is at the centre of this transformation. The intention of this symposium is to strengthen the alliances and cooperation between Latin America and the world.

 The official language of the symposium will be English but Spanish translations will be provided.

Welcome to Colombia, we hope to see you there!
