Tenth Anniversary of CIAC e-Magazine

The CIAC'S e-magazine has strived, since 1997, to cover all aspects of cyber culture, art and literature in their relationship to technology.

Incidental to La Biennale de Montréal 2007, the magazine is publishing a special edition to celebrate its 10th anniversary. This issue examines yesterday and tomorrow's best in terms of Net-art. The CIAC, and its editor-in-chief Anne-Marie Boisvert, invites you to join us in celebrating ten years of the Magazine - a rewarding and productive encounter between art and cyberspace.

Book Launch for Sylvie Lacerte,

La médiation de l'art contemporain, Édition Art Le Sabord.

This book focuses on the awkward relationship between contemporary art and various publics. The author examines the history of museums, from curiosity shops to virtual museums, while presenting case studies on mediations favoured by institutions and events devoted to new art forms.

While she scrutinizes the current educational system and its failure to form "cultural" citizens, Sylvie Lacerte also considers various solutions to open both the eyes and the minds of onlookers in order to go beyond controversy and the shock value of an art form snubbed by some, adulated by others
