Digital, interdisciplinary and collaborative project
March 24 to April 9, 2022
Video projection outside of metro Saint-Laurent
From March 24 to April 9, MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels) will present 5 groups of artists invited to create on the theme JUSTICE, a digital, interdisciplinary and collaborative project.
JUSTICE was conceived and realized for 2 different reasons: To support artists by commissioning new pieces, and to provide a platform for them to consider what justice means from their own perspective, thereby opening a dialogue about social, environmental, restorative and distributive justice, among other forms. JUSTICE was also envisioned as a way to provide new platforms for artists to present their work.
In total, five projects were supported, with the involvement of a total of 16 principal artists (not counting the many creative collaborators working behind the scenes). Sound, image and words are blended with the political, the personal and the poetic.
