Web Art Residency

New media creation
Residency program for web art production

At the crossroad of visual arts, literature and new media

Featuring works of fiction for the web, Agence TOPO supports the convergence of visual arts, literature and new media, the renewal of narrative genres on the web and a presence in the network of artists coming from diverse artistic and cultural horizons.

We invite all artists with a contemporary practice in any discipline to submit an individual or collective proposal for a web art project involving new approaches in terms of narrativity, visual design and interaction. The projects could include another component, such as performance, installation, exhibition, mobile device, etc., that may be complementary to the expanse of web features and possibilities.

The selected artists and projects will benefit from technical support by an experienced multimedia designer for a period of 4 to 8 weeks within a residency program that can be spread out over time depending on the artists needs and agenda.

We offer :
– Production fees
– Access to a computer and audiovisual equipment
– A technical support (programming and multimedia integration)
– The organization of a launching event in Montréal

Necessary documents / Due date : February 15, 2007

– Description of technical needs
– Proposed agenda (Spring 2007 – Winter 2008)
– Summary of artistic approach
– Press kit
– Curriculum vitae
