INTERACTION co-curated by Jane Tingley and Alain Thibault

INTERACTION
JANUARY 26 – May 13, 2018

INTERACTION is an exhibition that explores how Canadian artists and designers are engaging the public through interactivity. The presented works are both material art objects as well as interactive systems that are designed to be realized by an active viewer, one that co-creates, participates, and engages versus passively consuming media. The works in this show invite critical reflection by engaging the body and the mind, with playful and open-ended encounters, sensorially rich experiences, and immersive environments. The selected works use old and new technologies in order to imagine the future, explore the context of our technological present, critically reflect on digital culture, and engage the body on a sensorial and experiential. INTERACTION is a multi-modal art exhibition that will take place at THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener (ON), and will extend into Waterloo (ON) at Communitech and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI). The exhibition and related programming will run through January 26 to May 13, 2018. This exhibition is co-curated by Jane Tingley and Alain Thibault. The Curatorial Assistant is Zana Kozomora.

AltCon: The Alternative Conference for Emerging Arts & Culture Professionals

AltCon 2018
February 25-27, 2018

Identifying a need, The Alternative Conference for Emerging Arts & Culture Professionals (#AltCon) provides stimulating thought leadership, personal growth and networking for emerging leaders in the museum, arts, and broader cultural sectors. Break loose from traditional conference norms, with a variety of session styles and topics at a reasonable (read: arts budget) price. For one and a half days, we’ll share ways to build your personal brand, cultivate your self-leadership, and improve your self-advocacy skills. If we earn our keep, (oh, and we plan to) you’ll see the digital frontier through fresh eyes, and pick up creative techniques for engaging your colleagues and community in new ideas and experiences. And of course you’ll be rubbing elbows with new, like-minded people. THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener is about ideas and experiences. We provide fresh, relevant, cultural content from around the globe in original, interactive ways at the intersection of art, science, culture and technology. We have a growing reputation as a cultural destination, and a playground for new ideas and inspired play. A team of ten emerging professionals in their 20’s and 30’s from across Canada came together to create #AltCon for emerging professionals. Now they’d like to meet you.
