Reconstructing Screen Experiments from Expo 67’s Archives

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 | 7PM | Free admission
Knot Project Space, 2 Daly Avenue, Ottawa

Knot Project Space continues its Video in the Public Sphere speaker series with a lecture by Monika Kin Gagnon, Professor of Communication Studies at Concordia University, who has published widely on various topics relating to cultural politics and visual / media art. Gagnon's talk will focus on the screen experiments which took place at Expo 67, as well as the "making public" of these historic works through strategies of simulation.

- About Video in the Public Sphere Speaker Series -

The Video in the Public Sphere speaker series aims to open up and sustain a discursive space in which the wider Ottawa community can navigate, expand upon, and challenge the notion of 'publics' through critical lenses and contemporary concerns. A series of visiting artists, critics and curators, working at the intersection of artistic production and public space, will engage with the complexities of this terrain from various points of entry. Each will deliver substantial talks at Knot Project Space about their work and research.
