Collaboration

Throughout the year, Rencontres Internationales collaborates with various museums and art centres, schools and festivals on screenings, exhibitions and general activities. In this way, we aim to further support the works in our programme and create new exchanges among artists, professionals, and the public. Browse information about screenings in the series "Moving_image, A Contemporary ABC" from October 2012 to March 2015 at the Gaîté Lyrique in Paris. It offers a laboratory for discovery and reflection dedicated to contemporary practices of the moving image. Video, cinematic and multimedia works are presented as an Alphabet book. Beyond Les Rencontres Internationales, video and multimedia exhibitions are curated at the invitation of museums and art centres. They offer critical and progressive insight into areas with shifting boundaries, bringing together the aesthetic, social and political questions of our time, including issues related to changing modes of production and distribution. Beyond Les Rencontres Internationales, screenings are curated at the invitation of museums, art centres, art schools, movie theatres and festivals, in order to reach different audiences and contribute to a wider dissemination of the programmed works. Parallel to the screenings and exhibitions, certain collaborations take the form of multidisciplinary projects, conferences and round tables. Others take the form of temporary, artistic endeavours.
