CUAG Connects

Stonecroft Symposium: Working Together (March 8 at GUQO / March 9 at CUAG)

Friday, 8 March 2019, 7:00 p.m.

CUAG and GUQO are co-hosting a free, public symposium on March 8 and 9, in conjunction with the current exhibition Re: Working Together / Re : Travailler ensemble. This exhibition produces, embodies and explores collaboration. It features the work of artists Emmanuelle Léonard, Ahmet Öğüt, Redmond Entwistle, Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed, Mikhail Karikis, Kim Waldron and Émilie Monnet, and runs concurrently at CUAG and GUQO.

Together, we will explore how to foster successful exchange between communities, artists and institutions. And, we will consider a range of questions raised by collaborative practices, including: How is collaboration effective as a learning strategy? What kinds of agency do communities have when collaborating with artists? How can collaboration help us to work productively across platforms and disciplines?

On Friday, 8 March, GUQO will host a keynote address in the evening by Mélanie Bouteloup, director of Bétonsalon, a renowned centre for art and research in Paris.

On Saturday, 9 March, CUAG will host a series of themed sessions, led by local catalysts who will structure and moderate our conversations in experimental and engaging ways. 

Full schedule to be released soon!

Featuring contributions by Re: Working Together / Re: Travailler ensemble artists Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed, Redmond Entwistle, Emmanuelle Léonard, Ahmet Öğüt, Mikhail Karikis, Kim Waldron and Émilie Monnet, as well as Mirna Boyadjian, Geneviève Cloutier, Mique Michelle, Catherine Nadon and Laura Taler.

Attendance is free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not necessary. Coffee and tea will be provided. Attendees can buy lunch in the Residence Commons cafeteria. CUAG and St. Pat’s 100 are accessible, barrier-free spaces.

The Stonecroft Symposium: Working Together / Travailler ensemble is the second in a series of free annual symposia, held over the 2018-22 period. The series is made possible with a generous gift from the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts. It enables CUAG to cultivate discussions of timely and relevant ideas raised by the artists who lead our programming, and to encourage open and reciprocal public exchange.

CUAG and GUQO acknowledge with sincere gratitude the support of the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, which promotes education in the visual arts and fosters the public’s appreciation of the visual arts.

Afternoon Intersections: Who are the Knowledge Keepers and Producers?

Monday, 18 March 2019, 3:00 p.m.

What can occur when two scholars explore unexpected intersections between their fields of research? Join us to find out! Carleton University academics Julie Garlen and Andrea Reid will be speaking about their current research in relation to two exhibitions at CUAG. Hear their separate talks and then join the discussion to bring out convergences across new and exciting research in order create conversations between the exhibitions. 

Admission is free, everyone is welcome, and coffee and tea will be provided.

Re: Working Together / Re : Travailler ensemble includes two videos made by artists who work collaboratively with children: Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed’s SOUR VS. SOUR and Mikhail Karikis’ Children of Unquiet. Focusing on these works, Julie Garlen will discuss the relationship between social constructions of childhood (particularly childhood innocence) and participation, including children as artistic and cultural producers.

In UPRISING: THE POWER OF MOTHER EARTH — Christi Belcourt — A Retrospective with Isaac Murdoch, several of Belcourt’s paintings are filled with fish of the Great Lakes, and “Water is Life” is a repeated call to action. Andrea Reid will reflect on Christi Belcourt’s work as a water protector, and how the water-fish-people nexus is at the heart of both of their pursuits. She will explore the role that Indigenous Knowledge must have in fisheries conservation – in securing a future for the water, fish, and all that they sustain.

Julie C. Garlen is an Associate Professor of Child Studies and the Co-Director of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies at Carleton. Previously, she worked in early childhood teacher education in the U.S. South for 11 years. Her research explores how culture functions symbolically, institutionally, and pedagogically in the lives of children and youth. She is currently working to understand how the myth of childhood innocence has informed work with children within the context of the United States and Canada.

Andrea Reid is a fisheries scientist and conservation biologist. She combines ecological and social science methodologies, adopting an integrative approach to complex fisheries questions. She belongs to the Nisga’a Nation on British Columbia’s North Coast and has significant experience with Indigenous fisheries communities, practices, perspectives and issues in British Columbia as well as around the world (East Africa, Oceania and Southeast Asia). Andrea holds a B.Sc. in Environment and a M.Sc. in Biology from McGill University. She is co-supervised between Carleton University and the University of British Columbia for her Ph.D. in Biology, centered on Pacific salmon fisheries and conservation. Her research and outreach are supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and the National Geographic Society.
