Sight + Sound 2017 – A Spectrum of Non-Compliant Futures

The 2017 edition of Sight + Sound put ‘capital I’ innovation in its cross-hairs and dispassionately pulled the trigger. This year, Montreal’s artist run centre Eastern Bloc welcomed guest curators (a working group initiated by Nicolas Maigret and Maria Roszkowska) to program their eccentric, eclectic, and experimental festival to quite positive results. Organized around a central theme of ‘non-compliant futures’ (which doubles as the exhibition name) the work of more than thirty artists was assembled to “reveal, perturb, and pervert the cult of innovation” and pervert they did. Sight + Sound has been on CAN’s radar for years and we were truly excited to finally check out Eastern Bloc’s annual festival; while we were not able to stick around for the symposium and workshops we carefully combed through the flagship exhibition that spilled across the Never Apart Centre and Eastern Bloc during its opening at the end of September.
