MONTREAL ENTREPRENEURS TELL THEIR STORY
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Monique Savoie – Visionary
In the context of the exhibition Notman, A Visionary Photographer, the McCord Museum, in collaboration with BDC Capital and the Notman House, has organised an informal series featuring exceptional Montreal entrepreneurs.
A passionate video artist with a calling for installation art and electro-acoustic music, Monique Savoie is an integral part of the Montreal avant-garde. In 1995, she directed the sixth International Symposium on Electronic Arts, ISEA95 Montreal, and in the following year, founded the Society for Art and Technology (SAT), for which she acts as the artistic and development director.
Today, with more than 30 000 members, the SAT provides a networking hub at a time when digital culture is radically transforming our way of thinking, creating and sharing art. Since 1996, this multidisciplinary center has become a major convergence point for media arts in Montreal and is renown internationally in the technological field. In light of this achievement and others, Monique Savoie was named in 2014 by the City of Montreal as one of the most influential “builders” of the city. Since 2016, Monique Savoie also acts as Associate Director of La Gaité Lyrique in Paris.
Enjoy a networking moment after the lecture. Wine and appetizers will be served.
