CALL FOR PROPOSALS | INTERACCESS| WEB & DESIGN DEVELOPMENT FOR ONLINE EXHIBITION

DEADLINE:
OCT 22

Where: Toronto, ON

What: In December 2021, InterAccess will launch an online exhibition curated by emerging curator Tristan Sauer. The IA Current exhibition will explore the dreams and simulations of the computer age, and how they attempt to imagine new methods of digital co-existence and the future of our world. The show will draw parallels between our dreams and the simulations we create digitally through video game worlds, online chatbots, web VR, and avatars. It will question how we can learn about ourselves and our relations to others from these simulated realities. Eroding the dichotomy of the real and the virtual, this exhibition explores digital co-existence and the futurity of internet culture, with the aim of envisioning more equitable, diverse, and safe futures online.

In the exhibition’s call for works, Sauer asks artists: how can we imagine more ethical online futures? How can we avoid the mistakes of the physical world on the web? What is a simulation if not a computerized dream? What is a dream if not a psychological simulation? Can computers dream and if they can, of what? Is the brain a computer? Where does the threshold between digital and physical exist?
