The Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques (CQAM) presents the Quebec Digital Art Event. Displaying works in galleries and spaces across the city, the event is an opportunity to raise the visibility of Québec artists in the burgeoning American digital arts market. Exhibitions, installations and performances have been scheduled in addition to a New York edition of the International Marketplace for Digital Arts (IMDA). Organized by the ACREQ/ELEKTRA, the marketplace brings together Québec and U.S. artists, broadcasters, distributors and other industry players involved or interested in the digital arts. Assisted by the Quebec Government Office in New York, the CQAM has been working for close to a year on developing partnerships to bring about this North American first. The event, held as part of the festivities of the 75th anniversary of the Québec Government Office in New York, will help boost Québec’s presence on the New York cultural scene.
The Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques (CQAM) was founded on June 19, 1998. Recognized as Québec’s national media arts organisation since 2003, CQAM is its only media arts advocacy organisation welcoming independent professional artists, cultural workers and artist-run centres dedicated to the media arts.
