xCoAx is an international conference that promotes the discussion and discovery of synergies at the frontiers of digital arts, in the form of a multidisciplinary questioning on aesthetics, computing, communication and the elusive X factor that connects them all.

The 2017 edition takes place in Lisbon, in and around the Faculty of Fine Arts, and includes a conference, performance sessions, and an exhibition at MNAC. This exhibition runs from 6 to 23 July and you are welcome to visit it to appreciate insta.ants along with many other exciting works. More information about the exhibition here.
