PERTE DE SIGNAL has been dedicated to the development of digital arts for almost 20 years and has become an important player both in Quebec and internationally. Faced with changing technology and new public, the centre has developed open and modular production spaces that showcase and facilitate the mediation of various digital art practices. This space of experimentation paves the way for new types of intervention and exchange with the public by offering immediate experiences with the artists, their works and creation tools.
“I would particularly like to thank those who believed in this project and who worked in the shaping of this space. Born of a synergy between provincial, municipal partners and the community, this open laboratory will allow to highlight bold and unprecedented achievements of Quebec and international artists in contemporary art.” states Sofian Audry, president of PERTE DE SIGNAL.
This project was funded by the Government of Quebec and the City of Montreal. It is the result of a joint effort of public partners including the borough Plateau Mont-Royal, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Conseil des arts de Montréal along with artists and private enterprises.
PERTE DE SIGNAL is a Montreal-based art centre (member of Pied Carré grouping) that promotes and fosters the development of digital arts and innovative artistic uses of technology. From audio performances to video projections, and mechanical/robotics installations to public interventions, the PERTE DE SIGNAL membership works in a variety of mediums while exploring a wide array of artistic and formal approaches. PERTE DE SIGNAL strives to be a venue that encourages initiatives, cultivates collaborations, and supports the transmission and exchange of experiences and know-how within the greater artistic community.
