Ce qui se dessine de nouveau

«“Ce qui se dessine de nouveau”»: bridging politics and aesthetics in the expanded world of contemporary art

In January 2015, I had the pleasure of co-organizing a workshop with Mirna Boyadjian entitled «"Ce qui se dessine de nouveau"», in conjunction with the exhibition Richard Mosse: The Enclave, presented by DHC/ART from October 16, 2014 to February 8, 2015. This exploratory workshop was an opportunity to examine the links between aesthetics and politics in the expanded world of contemporary art: artistic creation, curating, art criticism, museum education, cultural programming and art history research. In order to keep these ideas circulating, we’ve made texts and audio files from the workshop available on a microsite.

We wish to thank all those who generously accepted to take part in this event: Michelle Bélanger, Erik Bordeleau, Joseph Henry, Ève Lamoureux, Nadia Myre, Chanelle Reinhardt, Sylvano Santini, Bernard Schütze, karen elaine spencer and Alexandre St-Onge.
