 2007 Researchers in Residence: Lizzie Muller and Caitlin Jones/Paul Kuranko
Lizzie Muller (Sydney, Australia) and Caitlin Jones and Paul Kuranko (New York, U.S.) are the 2007 recipients of the Researchers in Residence grant. Both residencies will examine the documentation methodologies of new media art while carrying out fieldwork at the exhibition Communicating Vessels: New Technologies and Contemporary Art - Ten Years of Accomplishments by the Daniel Langlois Foundation (e-art) presented at The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (September 20 - December 9, 2007). The residencies will be conducted at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D).

Lizzie Muller will be in Montreal from September to December 2007. Muller's residency will aim to champion the central role of human experience in the way we research and document new media art. Current projects supported by the Foundation will provide a dynamic testing ground for developing sound documentation practices and will form the basis for a valuable body of material. [More...]

Jones and Kuranko will be in Montreal in September 2007. During their residency, they will undertake three case studies of artworks and will survey and assess the considerable amount of activity in the field of media art preservation and documentation. [More...]

The researchers will make all findings available through the Daniel Langlois Foundation Web site.
