Special Exhibit: Presence

Throughout the Conference, the main lobby of Peterson Hall will house a temporary exhibit titled Presence, curated by members of the Centre for Society, Technology, and Development (STandD). Presence will intervene in the public area of the lobby to both assert and ask questions about the presence of academics’ research issues and relationships.Nic

Presence is about the politics of engagement and the complex intricacies of space and place. 

Presence ponders relationships between socialized, politicized, constructed, and naturalized environments, between researchers and their varied interlocutors, and between academia, art, and exhibition. 

Most importantly, Presence creates a public, common space where we can collectively engage with these questions and the pressing issues connected to our research practices.

If you’re around McGill on April 19th, there will be a reception with Krump dance performance and presentation as part of this installation.
