ISEA 2023 | Symbiosis 
Call for Applications open until May 26 / June 23

The 2023 rendition of the International Symposium of Electronic Art will take place in Paris from May 16 to 21 at the Forum des images - TUMO Paris, and over 100 french cultural institutions throughout spring 2023. 

The theme for the 28th edition of the symposium is symbiosis. In an era of global crisis — ecologic and economic; sanitary and socio-political — symbiosis is a notion that allows us to explore the metamorphoses afoot and to imagine possible futures. This symposium offers an incubator where artists, designers, scientists, and other thinkers will dialogue and debate on process and practice, exhibiting novel projects along the way.

Applications are now open for artists, designers, researchers and/or creators to exhibit and participate. Follow the link below to learn more:

ISEA 2023 Call for Applications

The expansive history of ISEA is also closely interconnected with the Metacreation Lab, with the 2015 edition of the symposium having been hosted in Vancouver, and co-directed by lab members Thecla Schiphorst and Philippe Pasquier. We invite you to take a look back to some highlights from that year at the symposium website here, including the academic proceedings and a published art catalogue.
