By bringing together so many important parts of the print art milieu, FAIMTL showcases the vitality of this milieu in the greater Montréal area.
The programme of free exhibits, workshops, fairs and activities will allow the public to discover the evolution of the increasingly multidisciplinary and hybrid practices present in contemporary printed arts.
This year's theme aims to explore the "other" spaces occupied by the printed arts, namely public spaces and virtual spaces. Often limited by technical and production aspects, the printed arts are increasingly seeing these obstacles dissolving and opening up to new possibilities that allow them to invade public and virtual spaces more easily and quickly.
Occupying public space also means occupying social space and being able to interfere in daily life, conveying a sometimes political, sometimes poetic message. The virtual space makes it possible to use a new language, new codes and a new aesthetic that shake up traditions and give a whole new dimension to the printed arts. It offers them a whole new field for experimentation.
