Conveners: Roewan Crowe, Praba Pilar and Javier Serna
In this workgroup we are interested in engaging with ways to manifest the artist’s repertoire. How do we make visible artistic knowledges, skills, and theories that inform artistic practices in the Americas, particularly work that is politically engaged? How might artists describe their processes of art-making, and the depth of their art practice? How might we bridge the gulf that often exists between scholarly languages and artistic languages? This is a decolonizing intervention, created to provide space for artists and scholars to dialogue about the similarities and differences among artistic languages and scholarly languages.
Roewan Crowe, trans-disciplinary artist, is energized by acts of disruption, transformation, and the tactical deployment of self-reflexivity. She recently published Quivering Land, a rather queer Western, that engages with poetics to reckon with legacies of violence and colonization. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Winnipeg.
Praba Pilar is a Colombian multi-disciplinary artist exploring the intersections of art and emerging technologies through performances, installations, street theatre, writing, websites and digital works. Her wildly diverse work has been presented internationally at museums, galleries, universities, festivals, public streets, and radio airwaves.
