Words & [ ] — a Durational Conference of Art & Thought

Posted on

The School of Making Thinking is thrilled to present “Words & [ ] — a Durational Conference of Art & Thought” to take place at The Darling Foundry May 6 – 8 2016. This bilingual [French/English] conference is a 56-hour art and thought marathon with round-the-clock live programming featuring presentations exploring the connections and fissures between thinking and art-making practices. We hope to dynamically explode the conference format through vibrant intermingling of art and thought, eroding the barriers between individuals, disciplines, methods, and cultures via Dionysian exhaustion.

We invite both artists and presenters to partake in the entirety of the event, sleeping and feasting together, fostering a philosophical community born out of an ephemeral maximalist, deep-absorption. What kinds of work might emerge when we enter creative overload together?

The School of Making Thinking was founded by Aaron Finbloom (PhD Candidate at matralab).

When: Friday May 6th 10am – Sunday May 8th 6pm (2016)
Where: The Darling Foundry, Montreal (QC)
Cost: $10/day suggested donation (for all who attend)
Accommodations: Free communal accommodations in the gallery
Deadline for Submissions: February 15th, 2016 11:59PM EST
