CITE DES ONDES

5TH INT. MANIFESTATION OF VIDEO AND ELECTRONIC ART

MONTREAL SEPTEMBER 16-23 2002



The 5th INTERNATIONAL MANIFESTATION OF VIDEO AND

ELECTRONIC ARTS OF MONTREAL (MIVAM) is creating an event to

pursue a critical artistic exploration on the linkage of a historical urban

district, its architecture and the role of electronic media in transforming

the structure, presence and perception of the urban sphere. Starting from

a new territory of investigation - the future urban redevelopment district

Centre-Sud of Montreal - the Manifestation seeks a poetic and artistic

reinterpretation of the current urban setting into the space of a CITƒ DES

ONDES (Radiant City). The chosen site - an urbanistically atypical area at

the edge of MontrealŐs city centre - possesses a unique identity with a

strong potential for social, economic and cultural development. This

identity, largely defined by the presence of major institutions related to

the domains of broadcast and telecommunications, is intended to be

defined by the creation of the CITƒ DES ONDES as a vehicle to reactivate

this historically significant urban zone.



The primary focal point of the Manifestation will be the historically

significant Craig Pumping Station located at 2000 St-Antoine Street East.

Built in 1887 following one of the worst floods in MontrealŐs history, this

stone edifice is now abandoned after having ceased its operation

several years ago. The building - a heritage structure - now sits isolated,

nearly imperceptible on a sliver of green within an interurban highway,

below and adjacent to the impressive Jacques Cartier Bridge, one of

MontrealŐs primary urban landmarks. The media arts organisation

Champ Libre has chosen this site for the 2002 Manifestation in order to

stimulate an artistic and urban debate while setting into motion an active

mechanism to define the vision and future urban vocation of both the site

and the neighbourhood -  the future CITƒ DES ONDES.



Champ Libre invites proposals for projects within the realm of media and

electronic arts to activate (rather than simply intervene) the Craig

Pumping Station and the surrounding site. The works (projection,

performance, installation, audio, video, virtual) selected for the

Manifestation will be diffused as indoor and outdoor public broadcasts

and live events. Particular attention will be given to works which present

an originality of artistic expression, presentation and potential for

interaction between the urban community and the site. In addition to the

in-situ diffusion Champ Libre will also occupy selected satellite locations

(gardens, metro stations, public interstices) to create a plural

scenography integrating electronic arts within the intersection of

architecture and urbanism.



Project proposals, works and abstracts are being accepted until July 1,

2002 (offline support material for international submissions may be

received up to July 12, 2002). For further information, submission rules

and forms please consult the project site at www.champlibre.com.
