Info Session: Working with Media Art in the Gallery
This workshop is for emerging media artists, curators, and arts administrators working with new media and digital technologies and who would like basic information regarding installing and exhibiting media based artworks.
When it comes to installing audio, video, and interactive digital artworks, it often requires technical know how and troubleshooting capabilities, as unanticipated issues may arise during the initial set up, as well as throughout the run of the exhibition or event. This workshop lead by interdisciplinary artist, educator and curator Adrienne Crossman will cover best practices when it comes to displaying video and audio based works, as well as things to consider when planning and exhibiting a wide range of digital and media artwork. The info session will be divided as a presentation and hands-on exercices using InterAccess audio-visual equipment available.

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.
