Since 1997, Ada X has organized HTMlles, a feminist media arts and digital culture festival in collaboration with several artist-run centers, arts organizations and research centers in Montreal and elsewhere. Bringing together artists, theorists and activists, each edition explores current socio-political issues through a series of exhibitions, lectures, performances and workshops.
In 2021, the theme of the festival is “Slow Tech”, in contradiction to the term High Tech. The majority of the artists exhibiting this year were inspired by the slow pace and forms of nature. Matières à relations is an exhibition presented as part of HTMlles.
The typeface is Paragon, in roman and italic styles. Originally designed by Chauncey H. Griffith in the 1930s as part of the “Legibility Group” for Linotype, Paragon was digitized in 2019 by Cédric Rossignol-Brunet of Fond de riz and released under the SIL Open Font License. It’s paired with Alfredo Marco Pradil’s HK Grotesk.
