RIAM – Festival for unlimited art & music – The International Meeting of Multimedia Arts (RIAM) takes place in Marseille. It is an initiative of the non-profit association “Technè”. Searching for a dialogue with a network of artistic organizations, RIAM works to give the best visibility and understanding of the artists presented. The focus is not promoting “digital arts” an independent area, but rather establishing an animated dialogue with other experimental and innovative artistic forms. The accent is put on a limited artist’s selection.
The organizers of RIAM describe their method of work in the following words: “Concerning the production, we deal first with the setting of the expositions and music performances and then with the edition of the works. We are also concerned with the importance of building networks of organisations, places and artists, not only in our artistic field, but in the one that includes the latest ideas in the current of artistic and theoretical stakes. The purpose is to stimulate a dialogue about both the ethical and aesthetic questions, brought up by the new technologies.”
