On April 11–13th MUTEK Montréal presents the 4th edition of MUTEK_IMG, their offshoot festival focused on digital creation. CAN/HOLO was invited to curate five panels within this year’s program, that bring together leading artists and thinkers to consider pressing aesthetic and sociopolitical questions.

CG artist Alan Warburton recently created an incisive video essay that describes the contemporary digital image as “spectacle, speculation, spam” and points at a few related practitioners and studios worth considering.
