A catalog designed for tablets
The research and creation workshop Coedition at the National College of Art of Nancy explores since several years digital art practices, in multiple forms: works, curating and performing arts. Its projects have been showed at Ballet de Lorraine, CITU, Nancy Museum of Fine Arts, Contexts (Paris), CNES Chartreuse Villeneuve-les-Avignon, Tunis Choreographic Festival, NaMiMa Nancy, etc. Its 2013 project was Co-edition, the first digital catalogue for iPad published in Ensa Nancy.
Alum is the first catalog ever published about the visual artists graduated of Ensa Nancy. Designed for tablets, the project grasps the very characteristics of this medium: cover as an index, very large pages dedicated to each artist allowing multiple relationships between their elements, multimedia, etc. The project was designed and built under the guidance of artists coordinators by the students of École des Mines (Nancy Engineering School), ICN Business School and Ensa Nancy Art College, who participated in the entire design process and realization of the publication.
Alum brings together the work of forty-two artists, spotted by the school and / or having answered to a call for participation launched in late 2013. Each one of them proposed a biography, a series of images or videos and – for some of them – a critical text about their work.
