Art and Research Residency Studio XX Montreal

Diversity Art Forum is supporting Ima Pico's residency video project at Studio XX Montreal in May-June 2011. Studio XX Montreal is a bilingual digital art centre for technological exploration, creation and critique. The centre is committed to establishing women's access to technology and has a strong focus on free and open source software.

Ima Pico will be creating a new body of work and will be working with the Mexican curator Erandy Vergara to make a selection of Canadian and Mexican video artists that will be shown in Manchester's Mad Lab (Manchester Digital Laboratory). Erandy Vergara is a independent curator specialising in curating media and was awarded the Abner Kingman Fellowship in 2008.

Here are two links that relate to the artist residency in Montreal and list of artists who firstly will be shown in Montreal. The list will vary when it comes to England.
