Location

OCAD University 100 McCaul St.

Conference concept:

Any encounter between an audience and a work of art is experiential. Beyond this universal dimension, much of contemporary art asks more of its viewers than just viewing.
This conference invites investigations of experience in contemporary art, across its various embodied practices: artists’ lived/personal experience as embodied in their art; the experiences of spectators and audiences; and experience as cultural legacy/history, including experiences of colonialism and decolonization.

keynote:

March 15
Dr. Erin Manning, Nestingpatching 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Auditorium 190, 100 McCaul Street

Erin Manning is a professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). She is also the founder of SenseLab (www.senselab.ca), a laboratory that explores the intersections between art practice and philosophy through the matrix of the sensing body in movement.
In this talk I bring into relation two practices – Helio Oiticica’s Nests and SenseLab’s schizoanalytic work on the material practice of thresholding. Thinking-with Laura Harris’s work on an aesthetic sociality of blackness, I explore the aesthetic yield in practices that foreground emergent collectivity. With the specter of a pragmatics of the useless always in the offing, I explore the artful potential of processes that orient toward an approxima-tion of proximity and compose with the minor socialities that come alive at this interstice.

Conference:

March 16
9:15 am – 5:15 pm
Auditorium 190, 100 McCaul Street Refreshments and lunch provided

Closing reception & art exhibition:
