Extensions, Prosthetics, and Symbiosis - Artist Talks
Join us for a series of artist talks by local and international artists exploring the extension of the body and cybernetic symbiosis through electronics, robotics, and wearable technology. Artists Nathan Serrano, Seb Pines, and Justine Emard will present 20-minute artist talks that address the body in relation to technology. The presentations will be followed by a public discussion and Q&A moderated by Lee Wilkins.
With the generous support of the Cultural Services of Embassy of France in Canada.

We regret that at this time InterAccess does not have barrier-free access; we are currently working to improve the accessibility of all facilities. There are five steps up to our main entrance. Once inside all facilities are on the same level, and there is a single-user washroom inside the unit.
To increase this event's accessibility, the panel will be live streamed using Facebook Live.
