Since 1984, VIDEOFORMES has acted as a permanent observatory of new developments in video and digital contemporary art and has been providing various opportunities for presentation, meetings and reflection for artists, professionals and public.
Since 1986, Videoformes annually has been organizing an international video and digital art festival. This event highlights the quality of the works and artists presented in the festival through exhibitions, lectures, screenings, performances, debates and meetings. Famous and/or young artists get to meet around multimedia installations, cinema and video films, performances, Web Art, live video and music performances (V-Jaying, D-Jaying), etc.
Since 1993 Videoformes has been running an alternative gallery (Galerie de l’art du temps/Chapelle de l’Oratoire), and a quarterly magazine about contemporary art and new technologies (Turbulences Vidéo).
In 2003, Videoformes initiates a policy of artists in residency.
Videoformes is now engaged in the development of Digital Video Archives, one of the most important video and electronic art collection that has been put together since 1986.
