COMPOSITE is an appointment quarterly networking magazine dedicated to digital creativity. Il est né d’une initiative du Conseil des arts de Montréal, et est maintenant coordonné par MAPP_MTL en collaboration avec les acteurs importants du numérique montréalais.

Cet événement a pour objectif de créer un espace de rencontre récurrent entre le milieu de l’art et de l’industrie du secteur numérique, en incitant la rencontre et la pollinisation entre créateur·rice·s, centres d’artistes, organismes, entreprises et professionnel·le·s du numérique.

This 39th edition of COMPOSITE takes place within the framework of the 14th edition of MIAN (Marché International de l'Art Numérique). MIAN is a series of professional days organized by ELEKTRA since 2007 to facilitate professional exchanges between key players in the international digital art and culture ecosystem. On June 20 and 21, 2024, the 14th edition of MIAN presents a series of discussions, panels and performances as part of the ELEKTRA Biennial, a major exhibition entirely dedicated to contemporary digital art, held from May 31 to July 21, 2024 at Arsenal art contemporain Montréal. For this seventh Biennale, some twenty artists from three continents address the theme ILLUSION, a reflection on our post-factual, post-truth and alternative reality era, curated by Alain Thibault.
