Eastern Bloc is an exhibition and arts production centre - located in Montreal,Québec - dedicated to New Media and interdisciplinary art. The vision at Eastern Bloc is to explore and push the creative boundaries in digital and electronic arts, audio/video installation, multimedia performance and other emerging practices.

The organization’s mandate is to support the work of emerging artists by providing them with an exchange platform with more established artists, allowing them to gain access to a larger body of spectators and to a network of established art organizations and professionals in the milieu.

Founded in 2007 by Eliane Ellbogen and Sandor Poloskei, the organization’s Artisitc Director and past Technical Director, Eastern Bloc fills a void in the professional art milieu in Montreal, as there are currently no other artist-run centres or art spaces that cater specifically to young artists or post-graduates in the first five years of their professional career working in New Media and related disciplines.
