General and artistic director
Since 2016, Aurélie Besson has been the Executive and Artistic Director of Molior.
She has developed collaborative projects in China, Brazil, Mexico, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland and Canada.
For more than 15 years, she has directed interdisciplinary projects in art, science and technology, alternately as a researcher, curator, artistic director or manager.
She is currently completing a doctoral thesis in research-based art practice at the Université du Québec à Montréal, co-supervised by Louise Poissant and Victor Frak. Her research has been developed according to a transdisciplinary approach in which she explores the concepts of enaction and the kinaesthetic senses in the experience of interactive works.
She has organized a dozen conferences and has been involved in several research groups with Montreal universities. She also coordinated the production of the book Lumières de la ville (PUQ), edited by Louise Poissant, and has published several articles on the digital arts in books, blogs and magazines.
Aurélie is regularly invited to conferences and sits on numerous committees and juries that recognize her expertise. Between 2007 and 2010, she directed European collaborative art and technology projects and events in Prague.
She holds a MA degree in communication (Université de Lyon 2; Universiteit Utrecht) and a MA degree in cultural development and project management (Université de Lyon 2).
