MUTEK Freshens Up Its 11th Edition With Free Highlights
In 2010, we all design our own MUTEK!
May 18, 2010
From June 2nd to the 6th, Montreal falls into the MUTEK groove when the festival sets its artists loose on the city streets! With our final announcement of a large range of free and outdoors shows, MUTEK 2010 is set to leave its fingerprints all over the city and proves once and for all that there are innumerable ways in which attendees can experience the festival.
On deck for those who want to discover the festival, MUTEK’s outdoor program EXTRA_MUROS returns for a second year to present two monumentally urbane art installations. A new public-art spectacle, Time Drifts, by Germany's PHILIPP GEIST, interprets themes of time and space by projecting arrangements of light against veils of fog as they drift into all corners of the place des Festivals. Meanwhile, MELISSA MONGIAT and MOUNA ANDRAOS take over the President Kennedy Pavilion at UQAM with their interactive installation entitled Bloc Jam.
A few steps away at the Monument-National, the festival epicenter, an ensemble of programs unfolds on weekday evening, featuring new projects by the brightest emerging artists from the local scene. Presented from June 2nd to the 4th, the EXPÉRIENCE series includes notable presentations by STEPHEN BEAUPRÉ’s new audio-visual project “Gemmiform” , the world premiere of AUN’s “Black Pyramid”, as well as performances by Montreal groups CITOFONO and JACOB & FRANCIS.
