Experience the world preview screening of our opening film Megalodemocrat: The Public Art of Rafael Lozano-Hemmer by Benjamin Duffield, alongside the movie crew and the world-famous artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer himself. It is a good way to prepare yourself to the exhibition, that will take place to the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal from May 24th

Plot 
What place does art have in our daily lives? Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer explores this question through his artistic use of technology. Through the development of acoustic environments, his light shows, and his BAFTA, Bauhaus, and Governor General Award-winning interactive projections, he uses technology to gather people and transform them into actors for social change. Filmed over 10 years in 25 cities around the globe, this film paints a picture of his approach and contagious enthusiasm when it comes to transforming the urban landscape into a work of art for all to see, from Vancouver to Rotterdam to New York.

In Spanish / English with English subtitles.
