what's up vienna! what's up montreal! vienna may 8-10 2011

What’s Up Vienna! What’s Up Montréal! brings together artists from two cities that have long been known to produce distinctive, dynamic and rigorous work to exhibit contemporary experimental music, film and video work. 
It is at once ‘site-specific’ in its focus on artists from Vienna and Montréal while also possessing a desire to stretch these borders.
The artists involved in What’s Up Vienna! What’s Up Montréal! come together for two intense periods, once in Montréal (and Winnipeg) in June 2010 and again in Vienna, May 8, 9 , and 10, 2011. To corrupt, or stretch the original hyper-focused civic project of Vienna and Montréal, the curators decided to break their own system and include Winnipeg, the city that originally brought them together. Curators Michaela Grill, Christof Kurzmann and Steve Bates met at send + receive 2003 and conceived of What’s Up Vienna! What’s Up Montréal! out of a desire to collaborate as curators.
In Montréal, the celebrated and respected Suoni Per Il Popolo festival presented the project and in Winnipeg, with the internationally renowned, Send + Receive: A Festival of Sound, a sound art festival which has been presenting cutting-edge media art for over 10 years.

In Vienna, the internationally renowned Austrian Filmmuseum presents the first of three evenings with a program of film and performance. The final evenings are presented by our friends at echoraum and feature video work from Montréal and live performances. 
These artists cover a broad approach to producing media art while incorporating interdisciplinary techniques not only within their own oeuvre but working collaboratively across disciplines including installation art, dance, theatre, and popular music.
