Non-Western Media Genealogies

A Substantial Motion Research Network Workshop with Laura U. Marks and Kalpana Subramanian

TIME & VENUE: 20th Feb 2019, 4:00 pm to 7:45 pm at Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Art Center

In this workshop eight media artists/scholars in dialogue with Substantial Motion Research Network members will explore alternative genealogies of contemporary media art, re-imagining its roots and connections with non-Western philosophies and practices. There will be a brief introduction toSMRN and the workshop by Laura Marks and Kalpana Subramanian. The participants will share their work in ten minute presentations which will be followed by feedback sessions of twenty minutes each. We have two guest presentations by Chris Lee and Jodi Lynn Maracle. Through this workshop we also seek to engage the Buffalo arts and media community with the art practices and research focus of SMRN. All are welcome to attend!
