When messages turn into art

bar.temp is a pop up bar that appears in an unexpected location.
A temporary event that aims to link art, web culture and people.

bar.temp will temporarily take over the exhibition space of iMAL and turn it into a cosy place for eclectic and curious minds.

Flavoured with creative food prepared by a visiting chef and carefully selected drinks, bar.temp will definitely amaze you with its arty program presented in a casual ambiance. 

Workshops#1: code and graph!

Make a statement! Create your own stencil patterns with a QR codes generator, F.A.T. Lab's QR_Stenciler (developped by Golan Levin) and the laser-cutter of iMAL's FabLab. We provide the tools, bring your ideas!

This workshop is led by iMAL's team.

Video screenings

An edgy look at society through the satirical, hilarious and often poetic artistic points of view. The video selection will blend animation film, fake advertising, performance recording, video clips...

Web art corner

All night long web show corner. In the perspective of a critique on our utilisation of media and information tools, how do artists stand up for those questions?

Live : Depth Affect

melancholic ballads, heavy bass and a bit of eighties sound for a great idm live act!
