Nomadic Resident Ryan Gander
Public Talk: Loose Associations
February 23, 7:00 Pm

The talk sits on the brink between lecture, performance and presentation. Its format and consistency are reminiscent of an informal conversation amongst friends in a pub, it’s subjects roam aimlessly, linked only by seemingly trivial facts. Incorporating a vast array of linked everyday phenomena, associated with hidden languages and abbreviations. The work attempts to question the use, interpretation and regurgitation of knowledge and information within common educational models.

The Nomadic Residents Program will run from February 22-26, 2016

About Nomadic Residents – International Residencies at OCAD University
The Nomadic Residents program was launched in 2006. Residents include Rirkrit Tiravanija (2006) Ann Hamilton (2007), ORLAN (2008), Hal Foster (2009), Adel Abdessemed (2010), Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh (2012), Candice Breitz (2013) and Pedro Reyes (2014). The series continues with the generous support of the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation.

Nomadic Residents aims to inspire and influence the OCAD University community and the public by featuring artists and thinkers from around the world whose work questions issues such as travel, mobility, displacement, dislocation, and homelessness, as well as the speed or instability of modern life. In bringing these innovative and diverse individuals to take up temporary residence at OCAD U, Nomadic Residents joins here to there, the local to the global and the provisional and the permanent.
