Please join us for Through Post-Atomic Eyes, a symposium hosted by OCAD University and the University of Toronto, in conjunction with Camera Atomica at the Art Gallery of Ontario. 

Through Post-Atomic Eyes brings together an interdisciplinary group of artists and scholars to explore the complex legacy of the atomic age in contemporary art and culture. In what ways do photography and other lens-based art practices shed light on this legacy in the 21st century, and how has atomic culture shaped contemporary intersections of photography, nuclear industries, and military techno-cultures? Join us as we explore some of the most urgent issues of our time, from climate change and the Anthropocene to surveillance culture and the advent of drone warfare, through a post-atomic lens. The symposium will conclude with a graduate workshop on Sunday 25 October, which will provide a unique opportunity for students to convene with symposium speakers in a small group setting.

Speakers include Karen Barad, James Bridle, Derek Gregory, Public Studio, Eyal Weizman and many more. Organized by Claudette Lauzon (OCAD University) and John O’Brian (The University of British Columbia). 

Registration is free but spaces are limited. Please visit the conference website for details.

Generously supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, in collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario, OCAD University, the University of Toronto, and the University of British Columbia.
