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.

ISEA2015 | LAUNCH – PRESS RELEASE

ISEA2015 | LAUNCH – PRESS RELEASE

03.2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The 21st edition of The International Symposium on Electronic Art will take place in Vancouver, August 14-18, 2015. This nomadic gathering of artists, researchers, performers, and academics consists of an academic conference, as well as a series of exhibitions, concerts, performances, workshops and events in public space. Twenty years after the first groundbreaking Canadian ISEA in Montreal in 1995, the symposium is coming to Vancouver in August 2015 to be held at the SFU Woodward’s campus as well as at many partner spaces and institutions in downtown Vancouver. ISEA2015 will be presented by Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Communication, Art & Technology (FCAT) and the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT).

The ISEA2015 Artistic Program will showcase over 160 artworks by contemporary artists that have been carefully selected by an international jury over the past six months. The innovative works range from large-scale interactive artworks to cutting-edge electronic music performances. Exhibitions and events will take place at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and many other sites and venues throughout the city.

In addition to exhibitions, ISEA2015 will be offering an exceptional workshops program with themes ranging from interactive storytelling and ethnography to movement and computing presented as a part of the International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO15).

The full ISEA2015 art and symposium program, as well as the workshops and tutorials, will be announced in the upcoming program releases. Full details of the events will be available on the ISEA2015 website.

21st International Symposium on Electronic Art Vancouver, Canada August 14-18, 2015

ISEA2015 THEME – DISRUPTION

ISEA2015’s theme of DISRUPTION invites a conversation about change, renewal, and gamechanging actions. This theme is calling for challenging the status quo and re-examining the frontiers between the academic world, and the art world, between practice and theory, between systems and reality, between art and society.

In practices ranging from hacking and détournement to generative art, innovative work across disciplines constantly finds ways to rethink or reconsider form, function, context, body, network, and culture. Within this theme, artists and scholars were invited to reflect and investigate trends in digital and internet aesthetics and revive exchange across disciplines. The works presented at the symposium will bring to light the spheres in which disruptive aesthetics can be explored, crossing into the worlds of science, technology, design, visual art, contemporary and media art, innovation, performance, and sound.

ISEA2015 – KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

ISEA2015 will feature 6 keynote speakers – Brian Massumi (Montreal, Canada), Michael Connor (New York, USA), Dominique Moulon (Paris, France), Hildegard Westerkamp (Vancouver, Canada) and Sara Diamond (Toronto, Canada). The closing address will be by The Yes Men, tactical media artists and activists, who use humour, truth and lunacy to bring media attention to the crimes of their unwilling employers. The Yes Men have impersonated World Trade Organization, Dow Chemical Corporation, and Bush administration spokesmen on TV and at business conferences around the world. As a part of ISEA2015 Symposium, The Yes Men will give a talk on the use of creative expression for subversion.

PRESS ACCREDITATION

Applications for press accreditation will be available from July 1, 2015 till August 13, 2015.

Call for Participation

22nd International Symposium on Electronic Art

ISEA2016

Hong Kong 香港 Cultural R>evolution
May/16–22/2016

Electronic media exemplifies the dual meaning of revolution: to always create new while returning to the old. In this dynamic, where multiple centers and margins compete for attention, and borders to be transgressed are shifting, paradigms and practices must be replaced, repackaged and re-appropriated to keep up with the parallel evolutions in art, creativity, culture, society, and politics.

We invite full and short papers, panel and roundtable discussions, posters, artist talks / work-in-progress presentations, proposals for artworks (including concerts and performances) and events in public space responding to the above main theme of the symposium and/or to one or more of the subthemes described below. We also invite proposals for workshops/tutorials, institutional presentations, applications for KAF x FUSE ISEA2016HK Residency Program, and, proposals for OPEN SKY GALLERY ISEA2016 Hong Kong 香港 Project for ICC Tower Urban Screen.
