Champ Libre, in partnership with the Société de Développement Angus, has the pleasure of announcing that the Fourth Manifestation Internationale Vidéo et Art Électronoique will take place in Montreal from September 20 to 27, 1999 in the former Angus locoshop, situated in the Rosemont-Petite-Patrie neighbourhood.

Champ Libre is inviting the public on a media journey that links architecture and electronic media. Samples, mixing, networked topographies and flux: this edition will question the contemporary issues of interactivity and interfaces and will reflect on the networks of exchange which are redefining the relations between the real and the virtual.

Contemplation and Anticipation: recent videos. A national and international selection of 50 new independent video works such as Fishtank by Richard Billinghamn, The History of Glamour by the American artist Theresa Duncan and Mémoire(s) by the French artist Gérard Cairaschi, Hara Kiri (exercises) by the Quebec artist Manon Labrecque, Spiritual Animal Kingdom by the Canadian artist Steve Reinke. Curator: John Zeppetelli.

Memento Metropolis: experimental films and video. This program on the theme of the city is made up of fifty works such as the Flâneur III: Benjamin's Shadow by the Danish artist Torben Skoldt Jenson, Tokyo by the Quebecois artist Francis Leclerc and Brazilia by the Belgian artist Robert Suermond. Curator: Étienne Desrosiers.

Liquid Pixels: performances. Three performances will be presented: Zoetrope by Joseph Hyde (UK), an exercise in sound; Sister Iodine, a French group which integrates electronic and acoustic residues into its musical compositions, and finally Human Body - Elektronik Fashion Show, an avant-gardist fashion show with live electronic re-interpretation, presented by the Parisian stylists Vava Dudu and Fabrice Lorrain.

Mental: installations. Two American artists respectively present Voice Off
and Partners/Parallel Play, two works which highlight the presence of narration in video.

New Media: circuits and connections. Twenty multimedia projects (CD-ROM and website) make up this program. Notable among them are Borderland by the French multimedia company Plokker, Bitblood Baby by David Bickerstaff (UK) and Gender Media Art by the Dutch company Axis.

Electronic Japan Now! An intervention titled Sonic Interface, by the Japanese developer Akitsugua Maebayashi, invites you to experiment with audio interfaces. Virtual reality for the ears.

Emerging Zone: Launch of a video program that focuses on young emerging artists from Quebec and the international scene. This program was put together by the Montreal collective Perte de Signal.
A Pack of Schisms: Editorial Project by the French collective Icono in which the different overlaps between architecture and interactivity are presented as an online performance.

Open Arborescence: lectures. An artistic interface proposal for the 4th Manifestation website will serve as a departure point for a series of lectures that focus on the digital re-actualization of images.
