Volume 4 MTL : Art and the Book
VOLUME 4 MTL: Art and the Book, Montreal’s art publishing conference and art book fair, is coming back September 29 to October 3 both live and through the web!
There will be a physical fair at the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT), 1201 Saint-Laurent Blvd., on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3, free to the public from noon to 6 pm, with exhibitors and attendees respecting all safety measures in effect.
The very boundaries of what a book can be will be explored in this edition of Volume focusing on the potential of new technologies such as AI, Augmented Reality (AR) and electronic publishing on books by and about artists.
Among the artists participating in the programming are Walter Scott, Moyra Davey, Ken Lum, Annie Descôteaux, Harry Dodge, Sky Goodden, Dana Michel, Michael Nardone, Maryse Larivière, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Milutin Gubash, Daniella Sanader, Fabiola Carranza and Amy Ching-Yan Lam to name but a few ! You can also expect presentations of books and works using Augemented Reality, an overview of the Mutations: The Book in the Digital Age project by TOPO ( Centre de création numérique ), as well as more programming in person and through web streaming during Art Book Month in October 2021.
Volume MTL is an ARCMTL project, produced in partnership with the SAT and TOPO and made possible in part thanks to the support of SODEC, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
