Call for Submissions – Intersections: Art + Research

Sunday, October 15th @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Union Gallery is pleased to invite graduate and senior undergraduate students to submit presentation proposals for its program, Intersections: Art + Research. This is a cross-disciplinary opportunity to present research in conjunction with artists exhibiting in the gallery.

We are looking for brief proposals (200-300 words) from graduate and senior undergraduate students whose research speaks to themes present in gallery exhibitions. This program encourages a cross-disciplinary approach in sharing and understanding the work being produced in the Queen’s community. Intersections: Art +Research is a recurring program throughout the year, and as such, proposals may be submitted at any time. The gallery will then select researchers whose work links thematically to exhibitions.

The next presentation of Intersections: Art + Research will be held in November during the exhibition: Espace Plausible; Plausible Space. We invite expressions of interest from researchers to present a 15-20 minute talk alongside New Brunswick-based artist, Mathieu Léger, within the context of this exhibition.

Léger has been travelling across the globe, attending over forty artist residencies as a method for investigating territory, boundary, and identity. His artwork engages with the visual conventions of land surveillance and cartography as means to examine geography and travel, isolation and belonging, and migration and displacement.

This will be a unique opportunity to share your work as well as improve communication and presentation skills. More information on the exhibition can be found on our website, or through a visit to our gallery, located in the Stauffer Library foyer.

Different themes explored through the artwork include (but are not limited to):
• cartography, geography
• the environment
• borders and territories
• ecology

If interested please send a brief proposal to attn. Claude Bock:
Those interested in presenting are asked to submit their proposal no later than October 15th, 2017.
