The simpler, more efficient platform designed to meet the new demands of online dissemination and promotion
Montreal, September 14, 2012 – Montreal artist centre Perte de Signal, celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, is launching an all-new web site. The simpler, more efficient platform is designed to meet the new demands of online dissemination and promotion and to better serve member artists and the distribution of their work.
For the last 15 years, Perte de Signal has served its members as a centre for distribution and dissemination. Given the evolution of technologies and of online video management and transmission, the organization has worked at developing a web site to facilitate the collection and availability of these videos. In an innovative move, the Vimeo interface is embedded at the core of the site’s content, thus helping to pool resources and focus the efforts of artists and other cultural players while establishing a clear, dynamic, and efficient promotional platform.
The new site provides more news on exhibitions, events and current projects at Perte de Signal, both at home and abroad. It offers direct access to all the organization’s videos and information on its 20 or so member artists. A video catalogue presents all their installations, performances, screenings, and interventions. Likewise, the centre’s publications and touring projects are all described, as are the residencies, workshops, and access to its lab.
Perte de Signal is an artist centre based in Montreal whose mandate is to promote the development and dissemination of digital arts and innovative artistic uses of technology. In their work, member-artists adopt different mediums and explore a variety of formal approaches, from sound performances and video screenings to mechanical/robotic installations and public interventions. Perte de Signal’s activities have the following prime objectives: 1) to promote its members’ work, nationally and internationally; 2) to support creative research and artistic experimentation; 3) to develop critical reflection on digital arts; and 4) to engage with various audiences through artistic mediation. Finally, and above all, Perte de Signal is meant to be a meeting place to foster initiatives, collaborations, exchanges and the sharing of know-how within the artistic community as a whole.
Perte de Signal’s website is located at the following address: http://perte-de-signal.org/
Perte de Signal thanks Feed Studio for the design and Félix Ménard for the programming of the website.
