Canadian new media artists celebrating InterAccess's grand re-opening

InterAccess has been home to new media art and artists for nearly 25 years. This exhibition brings together important new media artists in Canada who have, now or in the past, had a connection with InterAccess on the occasion of InterAccess's grand re-opening in a new and renovated location in the Queen West gallery district. Organized around a theme of interactivity, the exhibition looks historically at works addressing this idea inherent in electronic media art. From Vera Frenkel's early explorations in the 1970s, to David Rokeby's spectacular and chilling recent works, interaction is explored as a medium of choice -- made either by humans or artificially intelligent machines.

This must be the place looks anew at these works within the environment of InterAccess's new space, both gallery and production centre, representing the full circuit of media production and the historical importance of artist-run media production centres within Canada.
