Official Market Selection 2022

In continuation of our efforts to promote our local artistic community, we have once yet again selected a cohort of 19 outstanding artists and artistic projects from Québec and Canada: the Official Market Selection 2022.

Handpicked by MUTEK’s curatorial team, the selected artists and artistic projects are at the forefront of pushing the boundaries of digital creation and electronic music. It is our great pleasure to introduce our 2022 cohort.

Discover the Market Selection Catalogue

We provide these 19 artists and artistic projects from Québec and Canada with maximum visibility in the lead-up and throughout the festival activities via our Market Catalog. This catalogue showcases their work in an easy to navigate format and includes a market-specific introduction video that we produced for the artists. In addition, the artists participated in a month-long workshop series that taught them about how to market their artistic practice including topics such as funding & monetization, copyright & intellectual property, and marketing strategies.

For artists, the Market is an opportunity to disseminate their creative works through a strong network of festivals, curators, promoters, cultural organizations, and creative companies from around the world.

What Artists Say

April Aliermo (Phedre)

It was the first festival we played at where we felt that the organizers really cared about the artists' careers. It was extremely thoughtful and helpful. We made connections that we wouldn't have been able to make anywhere else, and shared thoughts about our careers that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. We felt really supported!

I really enjoyed MUTEK Market. It's always hard to meet the 'right people' in any industry, and having MUTEK vouch for me meant that I had a much better chance of being taken seriously than if I met these people in any other setting. MUTEK has already helped me a lot in my career and this marketplace experience was the icing on the cake
