Las Américas : Prácticas Artísticas Indipendientes en la Era de la Mundialización

The Res Artis 12th annual General Meeting, Montréal October 6-10.

On the subject of mobility, “lightness,” and Writing and Research Residencies, the CRUM remains resolutely local.

Panelists are (from left to right), Marc Drouin (Centre des auteurs dramatique, off camera), Sylvie Gilbert (Artexte), Johan Lundh (independent curator), Felicity Tayler (CRUM), Kitty Scott (Banff Centre) and the moderator, Peter Dubé. Dubé’s recent novella, Subtle Bodies, bears the lightness of sensuous language.

What possibilities for artistic action exist within the public sphere?

The CRUM welcomes independent curator Alissa Firth-Eagland to Montreal. As part of her stay, she will give a talk at Skol to present her practice and experiences as a nomadic cultural worker, and her interest in printed matter as public sphere. A fictive text, produced as part of a collaborative project organized by École du Magasin (Grenoble, FR) puts forward The Bruce High Quality Foundation (New York) and Claire Fontaine (Paris) as protagonists and acts as an entry point to an open group discussion.

Presentation and discussion
Thursday, July 8th, 2010 – from 5 to 7pm

CRUM International Residency (CIR) : Sara Wookey

June 29, 2010

The CRUM International Residency (CIR) program was inaugurated with Los Angeles-based artist, choreographer and creative consultant, Sara Wookey. In anticipation of future projects, Sara explored interests in all things movement-body-space related: urban development; public transportation; spatial design and signage.

What struck me the most was the human scale, the ease of moving the body from point a to point b and the juxtaposition of old industry to new development. -SW
