2017 CADN Speaker Series: Where is your Disruption?


Fragmentation and Entanglement in Contemporaneity

 
DateTuesday, March 7, 2017 - 7:00pm to Wednesday, March 22, 2017 - 7:00pm

Location

Auditorium 190, 100 McCaul Street OCAD University

Divisiveness has been a prominent feature in the cultural and political discourse of the past year. Given such fragmentation, what are the possibilities for remedying social cohesiveness? What role can art play in addressing the disruptiveness that permeates contemporaneity? The speaker series explores the manifold ways that disorder and fragmentation pervade contemporary art, design and new media theory, practice and exhbition. Our speakers will discuss some of the emerging ideas of a history not yet written - the history of a contemporary art entangled with political issues, social trends and millenial concerns.

The MA Program in Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories (CADN) at OCAD University invites teh public to participate in two sets of conversations between artists, scholars and acticis on the current state of art and politics.

"While honey bees get most of the credit, a considerable amount of agricultural pollination is performed by wild bees. In Toronto, backyard fruits and vegetables are pollinated mostly by wild bees. So, it is a good thing that there are over 350 species living within the GTA" - Bees of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World, City of Toronto
