Please join us for the virtual book launch event for Curating Lively Objects: Exhibitions Beyond Disciplines, on October 28th, 5pm to 7pm EDT, hosted by OCAD University’s Faculty of Arts and Science and School of Graduate Studies, in partnership with Onsite Gallery.
 
Co-edited by Caroline Seck Langill and Lizzie Muller, Curating Lively Objects explores the role of things as catalysts in imagining futures beyond disciplines for museums and exhibitions. Contributing writers describe how their curatorial collaborations with diverse objects, from rocks to robots, generate new ways of organizing and sharing knowledge.
 
Bringing together leading artists and curators from Australia and Canada, Curating Lively Objects addresses object liveliness from a range of entwined perspectives, including new materialism, decolonial thinking, Indigenous epistemologies, environmentalism, feminist critique and digital aesthetics. Foregrounding practice-based curatorial scholarship, the book focuses on rigorous reflexive accounts of how curating is done. It contributes to global topics in curatorial research, including time and memory beyond and before disciplinarity; the relationship between human and non-human across different ontologies; and the interaction between Indigenous knowledge and disciplinary expertise in interpreting museum collections.
 
Caroline Langill and Lizzie Muller will be joined in conversation by Ryan Rice, Lisa Myers, Randy Lee Cutler, Tess Allas, Lucas Ihlein, and Sarah Cook.

Bewilderness by Catherine Black, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences and School of Interdiscipinary Studies, at Guernica Editions’ Fall Launch. 

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

Supermarket, 268 Augusta Avenue

3:30 P.M. -6:00 P.M.

Gary Barwin writes, “In Bewilderness, each item in the notebook of everything is connected by an invisible thread to each other thing. Catherine Black weaves her poems with these threads, connecting the luminosity, resonance and being of the everyday, its complex web of perceptions and emotions with evocative sensory and conceptual allure. We are “bewildered” in that everything, even the familiar, is newly discovered, wild to possibility, observation and poetry. As the book reads our world, we read this book: with eyes wild open.”

In this poetic, poignant memoir, Dene artist and social activist Antoine Mountain paints an unforgettable picture of his journey from residential school to art schooland his path to healing.

In 1949, Antoine Mountain was born on the land near Radelie Koe, Fort Good Hope, Northwest Territories. At the tender age of seven, he was stolen away from his home and sent to a residential school—run by the Roman Catholic Church in collusion with the Government of Canada—three hundred kilometres away. Over the next twelve years, the three residential schools Mountain was forced to attend systematically worked to erase his language and culture, the very roots of his identity.

While reconnecting to that which had been taken from him, he had a disturbing and painful revelation of the bitter depths of colonialism and its legacy of cultural genocide. Canada has its own holocaust, Mountain argues. As a celebrated artist and social activist today, Mountain shares this moving, personal story of healing and the reclamation of his Dene identity.
