Tending Land

Exhibition dates to be announced

In marking our 40th anniversary, the Digital Arts Resource Centre (DARC)formerly SAW Video, did not wish to simply look back at the legacy of our organization but to take stock of the present. While our new mission speaks to our excitement about the tantalizing possibilities of computer-generated media art, we wish to dispel perceptions that the digital realm is ethereal, elusive, and untethered to reality, or that it is devoid of deep-rooted mechanisms of oppression. We affirm our support of creative expression in all its forms, but at this pivotal juncture in the world’s history, we are especially interested in hearing and amplifying critical voices that speak to humanity’s anxiety, pain, and hope.
