MONTREAL.- As part of its Projections series, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal presents Music Video, a program of works produced between 2010 and 2013, and centred on the dancing body and performance.

The history of the music video is punctuated by some memorable performances that reflect not only current trends and issues, but also the growth of technology and the media. With the advent of YouTube, social networks, webcams and online sharing platforms, the music video scene has once again been transformed, giving free rein to participatory, hybrid, interactive choreographies in which the public is sometimes invited to play an active role. Inventiveness, strangeness and surprise are to be expected in these pieces whose forms and actions relate to a variety of disciplines, such as performance, dance, sculpture, collage and kinetic tableau.

The selection featured in Music Video, which showcases creative artists from North America and Europe, vividly illustrates these exuberant new forms with works by Emily Kai Bock and Claire Boucher for Grimes, by Daniels for Battles, by Ninian Doff for Graham Coxon, by Daniel Franke and Cedric Kiefer for a piece by Machinefabriek, by Garth Jennings for Atoms for Peace, by Kahlil Joseph for Flying Lotus, by Vincent Morisset for Arcade Fire, by Sammy Rawal for Bonjay and by dominique t skoltz˜.

The Projections series is organized by Louise Simard, Head of Multimedia at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
