MUTEK Montreal is back June 1 to 5, 2011
October 06, 2010
After much consultation and deliberation, we are pleased to announce the dates for MUTEK's 12th edition. With the Formula 1 Grand Prix's dates now officially falling a week later than originally announced, we are able to maintain our current slot on the international festival circuit for our next edition. Mark your calendars - MUTEK returns to Montreal June 1 to 5, 2011!
We truly appreciate the volume of responses and the time taken to share your point of view with us in this matter. All of your comments were carefully weighed and considered in our deliberations, and despite the fact that we will be holding onto our customary dates next year we feel that your input has given us an update of the issues and realities that concern our public.
We are already at work crafting the 12th edition, and are truly excited about the upcoming year and the changes it brings. Housing nearly all of MUTEK's venues, the Quartier des Spectacles district will have advanced in its construction and renovations by the next edition - blocks and buildings that are currently torn and boarded-up will give way to more welcoming and dynamic spaces in which to integrate our presentations and activities during the festival. The Society for Arts and Technology (SAT), one of MUTEK's longest-standing partners, will also have opened its doors to its newly-renovated facilities, including a whole extra floor hosting a restaurant, and a rooftop dome for 360 degree immersive video installations (click here for photos of SAT's renovation projects).
These new spaces open a wealth of possibilities to enrich Montreal's digital culture experience, and we are excited to take part in exploring and embellishing this renewed urban canvas through our 12th edition and beyond. We'll be releasing more information about the festival in the months to come, so be sure to stay tuned!
