The Post Image Cluster is part of Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology, a research centre at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. The Post Image Cluster is uniquely located both within an academic and contemporary art context.
Image-based research groups and individuals help define the Post Image Cluster as a dynamic research space with an open studio access model. Post Image allows researchers and graduate students to come together around ongoing projects, to take part in the discussion, analysis, exchange, critical commentary of images, and to join in the production and dissemination of individual and collective projects.
As a research-creation working group, we strive to foster an image based research culture that locates itself in-between institutional and community driven art making. Our initiatives, events and facilities are grounded in studio practice and prioritize collective models in the learning and sharing of ideas combined with self-directed research.
