7a*md8 (Mediate)

7a*md8 consists of a series of multi-platform performance-for-the-camera screenings and digital residencies distributed across a range of Toronto cultural spaces as well as online platforms. The Toronto Performance Art Collective (TPAC) has a record of supporting  a diversity of practices in the field of performance art. Expanding from our established festival format, we would like to create points of access for Toronto artists working at the intersection of performance and new media forms, as well as  those who may find it difficult to travel to Toronto due to remoteness, disability, personal obligations, or political circumstance. 7a*md8 explores new ways for TPAC to address these concerns. Harnessing the potential of  the proliferation of Internet platforms for disseminating performance videos, 7a*md8 offers a fresh approach to performance and new media curation, featuring three distinct events that examine contemporary developments in the relationship between body art, lens-based practices and the politics of access.

Responses to the project by commissioned writers Jenn Snider (Meditation on Mediation as Medium) and Delilah Rosier (Residencies of Resistance; Or, Performatively Flexing for the ’Gram) are posted on our blog.
