This Could Be The Place: performance art symposium Export this event to calendar

Monday, May 30, 2016 — 12:00 PM to Saturday, June 4, 2016 — 4:00 PM EDT

Hosted by the Department of Fine Arts and University of Waterloo Art Gallery (UWAG), this symposium uses borders as a framing principle to explore aspects of culture, identity, gender, migration, and indigeneity.<--break->

Border is a curious word that is alternately used to describe a geo-political demarcation or a decorative element. It is a permeable space where people and ideas intersect or are kept apart. Things happen at borders: crossings, connections, separations, reunions, transgressions. Lines are drawn. Borders blur in the wake of our increasingly globalized culture. At the moment, we are experiencing an unprecedented movement of goods and people underlined by the ongoing refugee crisis.

The artists will present relevant, topical projects over the course of five days, followed by a closing symposium.

This Could Be The Place is co-curated UWAG director Ivan Jurakic and Fine Arts professor Bojana Videkanic.
