Break The Distance: On-site Moving Programme


ISEA2020 has prepared a moving video programme with outreach, accessibility and COVID-19 safety measures in mind: from October 13th to the 18th, two trucks equipped with large LED screens will be in transit around the city showcasing the works of 13 national and international artists that will stop you in your tracks. The projects will be presented throughout the city, exploring dynamics of proximity and distance, and introduce new sentient imaginaries into the heart of Montreal.


We invite you to check out this stealthy programme of which only hints of locations will be disclosed, and that you get the chance to catch it if you can!
