Elisa Ferrari has curated an exciting group of installations and performances for ISEA. Join us for an unforgettable party at renowned Vancouver artist run centre VIVO. 

Featuring works by Emmanuel Madan, Brady Marks, Angela Ferraiolo, Ed Osborn, and Frederico Pimpão

VIVO is an easy skytrain ride from both downtown near the SFU campus, and the New Media Gallery in New Westminster, where there will be an opening earlier the same night. 


The Satellite Video Exchange Society (now VIVO, incorporated 1973) was the first video exchange library, and one of the earliest international video centres and Canadian artist-run centres. Its founding mandate was to facilitate international information exchange through a public video library and, by the 1980s, to provide access to video equipment, basic workshops, and publish a magazine, Video Guide, distributed internationally.

VIVO’s mandate is to directly support artists and independent community-based producers to develop, exchange, and disseminate their skills in a supportive environment through accessible services and programs. Our vision is a robust, diverse, and vibrant media arts sector: a catalyst for critical and innovative engagement with the material forms and cultural meanings of media and technology. VIVO’s programs offer a broad range of services and opportunities to artists and the public. They include:

•    Access to the material necessities for quality production through affordable equipment rental, editing 
facilities, software, and production space.
•    A broad range of skill development and education opportunities that encourage the exploration of 
technology and aesthetics within a critical, artistic framework.
•    Public programming: events, exhibitions, residencies, co-productions, critical forums.
•    International distribution, work exchange, and media arts preservation which support the aspirations and 
livelihood of artists.
•    Western Canada’s largest public reference library and archive of media art, independent video, and 
related publications, documents, audio recordings, and photographs.
