.Title: Untitled Document
The International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) is the main
nomadic international academic gathering focused on electronic and
digital arts. Since its inception in 1988 in the Netherlands, it
has been organized in 4 continents and in over 20 international
cities that span Istanbul, Paris, Munich, Albuquerque, Sydney and
Dubai. ISEA last came to Canada in 1995 in Montreal, where it had
a tremendously positive impact on the local community both in
terms of cultural and economic shifts that remain central to
Montreal even today! ISEA brings together scholarly, artistic, and
scientific domains in an interdisciplinary discussion and showcase
of creative productions applying new technologies in art,
interactivity, and electronic and digital media.
ISEA2015 is hosted by Simon Fraser University's Faculty of
Communication, Arts, and Technology, its School for the
Contemporary Arts, and its School for Interactive Arts +
Technology (SIAT). We expect 1000+ artists, scholars, researchers
and students from around the world, making it the largest event on
electronic art and digital media offered to date in British
Columbia. While centered at SFU Woodward's, our programming is
overflowing in various venues in the Vancouver area. Partners
include many local artistic organisations and venues including:
the vancouver Art Gallery, the Western Front, VIVO, the Museum of
Vancouver (MOV), Grunt Gallery, Vancouver New Music, 221A, New
Westminster New Media Gallery, Fortune Sound Club, the New Form
Festival, amongst others. As such, we believe that this event will
exemplify SFU's vision of engaging students, engaging research
(both practice and theory), and engaging the local, national and
ISEA2015 is a five-day symposium featuring over 500+ speakers,
presenting 19 workshops, 10 tutorials, papers, panels,
roundtables, posters, and demonstrations, and showcasing over 180
artworks ranging from large-scale interactive artworks to
cutting-edge electronic music performances. The theme of ISEA2015
- Disruption - will allow re-examining and re-negotiating the
frontiers between the academic and the art world, between practice
and theory, between systems and reality, between art and society.
To frame this dialogue, ISEA2015 will feature keynote addresses by
visionary pioneers such as Brian Massumi, Michael Connor,
Dominique Moulon, Hildegard Westerkamp and Sara Diamond. The Yes
Men will cloture the symposium with an address on the use of
creative _expression_ for disruption and subversion.
