Since the 1990s, VOX has moved increasingly in the direction of producing projects that combine photography and technologies. The year 2005 has marked a turning point for the centre, which has created a major Fonds documentaire (Documentary Collection) with the goal of contributing to the advancement of knowledge regarding the history of and issues involving the image, both contemporary and historical. The development of VOX’s digital activities also includes support for the production of mediatic works with the goal of encouraging experimentation in new media by contemporary artists.
THE FONDS DOCUMENTAIRE DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE QUÉBÉCOISE
The Fonds documentaire brings together visual documentation of the work of more than 120 Quebec artists. It makes accessible on the Web, free of charge, reproductions of almost 7,000 works form 1950 to the present. In addition to a database with an advanced search engine that lets users consult artists’ images and texts about their works, the Fonds documentaire includes artists’ projects, thematic paths, and visual essays that offer both the general public and the art community a chance to better understand image practices in Quebec.
Production of this database was made possible thanks to financial assistance from the Department of Canadian Heritage as part of the Canadian Culture Online Funding Program.
AT WORK AND PLAY
An experimental artwork by Angela Grauerholz which offers a new way to navigate within an archive of more than four thousands documents about the history of modernism, as well as the ability to visualize, in real time, the path created and to generate a different "memory palace" with every visit.
This project is a production of VOX contemporay image centre produced in association with Sylvain Allard, graphic designer, and Clenche Inc. and was made possible thanks to financial assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as the Hexagram Fund.
