[ISEA2020] Introduction: Nathalie Maillé — Welcome by Conseil des arts de Montréal

The Conseil des arts de Montréal is proud to be supporting the International Symposium on Electronic Art for this seminal edition. Not only will the symposium bring together agents of change from around the world, it will allow the work of artists to cross borders unencumbered.
The digital arts hold untapped opportunities for all disciplines. We consider ourselves lucky that Montreal was chosen as the base for this highly strategic event that will serve as a catalyst for research and creation in a rapidly growing field.
The participation of artists in this multidisciplinary event underscores the important contribution they make in society and in their communities of practice. Through dialogue with the academic and scientific communities, artists can put their works to use for the advancement of research.
With its theme of Why Sentience? , this year’s interdisciplinary symposium is sure to shed light on pressing contemporary issues while bringing to bear all our senses.
We wish you many fruitful exchanges. Have a great symposium!

  • Nathalie Maillé, Executive Director, Conseil des arts de Montréal
