Expo virtuelle: #VertigeDesImages




The students of the specialization master in visual cultures (UCLouvain), supervised by Professors A. Streitberger (FIAL) and S. Fevry (COMU), invite you to the opening of their virtual exhibition, on May 11 at 6 p.m.
Images have always been a constitutive part of human societies, of history as it is perceived and told, of our fabric of meaning and of individual and collective imaginations. However, nowadays, we observe a constant intensification of the flow of images which reach us and which we create: in particular by our consumption of social networks, advertising, continuous information, films and series, etc. This multiplication of types of images and supports is enough to make you dizzy!
To adapt to the confinement caused by the covid-19 crisis, the exhibition, initially planned for Louvain-La-Neuve, has been virtually recreated to accommodate a digital version of the works on display.
From the concept of metapicture developed by W.JT. Mitchell, we offer you a real reflection on images, media and the borders of art. This immersive virtual journey invites us to (re) discover the images of our daily lives, through the powers and influences they exert on us.
Dive with us into the virtual spiral across your screen!
