The presentation will showcase how Studio XX supports feminist artist communities through the production of artworks in digital art through artists’ residencies by providing space, equipment and specialized resources; the dissemination through the presentation and promotion of artistic works as well as training through workshops and activities. Studio XX also produces the festival HTMlles, a feminist media arts and digital culture biennial. Its 13th edition will take place in November 2018.
