Part two of a look at how the art of today created on computers are entering the real world gallery. In this interview, we examine the X + 1 event at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, a night where net artists from around the world have their works projected around the vast space of it’s Rotonde architecture. Organized by Erin Gee, Benoit Palop, Sabrina Ratté and Tristan Stevens, the show selected a number of net artists who then themselves chose another creative to have their work shown (hence X + 1), noting the characteristic and importance of networking and creativity of the scene. Here we talk to Tristan about the event, and how such institutions are adapting to current creative movements.
