Abstract (in English): 

A review of the ELO 2018: Mind the Gap! exhibition at the Galerie du Centre de Design at at L’Université du Québec à Montréal.

Pull Quotes: 

It’s not exclusively electronic, nor is it necessarily literary, but it’s all exhibited under the banner of electronic literature. For their annual conference, this year at L’Université du Québec à Montréal, the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO)—a group dedicated to the propagation and preservation of such media—put on a materially and conceptually diverse exhibition of dozens of e-lit works at the university’s Galerie du Centre de Design. The conference’s bi-lingual theme, Attention à la marche! / Mind the Gap! references the many voids in scholarship, representation, and preservation that the global e-lit community is trying to fill, and this associated exhibition features works that show progress towards this goal.
