Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal
To mark the 50th anniversary of Expo 67, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is presenting In Search of Expo 67, a major exhibition of new works by contemporary Québec and Canadian artists, all inspired by Expo 67.
Marije Baalman collaborated with Chris Salter, Thomas Spier, Sofian Audry and Adam Basanta to create “N-Polytope – behaviour in light and sound after Iannis Xenakis,” which will be shown at the expo.
This re-imagining at LABoral runs in both a 25 minute performance as well as a continuously evolving installation mode, both steered through a sensor network utilizing cutting edge machine learning algorithms which learns different rhythmic and temporal patterns produced by the light and sound and helps in generating a totalizing, visceral composition that self organizes in time.
