Symposium: Traumatic Histories, Artistic Practice and Working from the Margins

Friday, November 15, 2013, 9:30 am-5:30 pm

Lillooet Room, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre

This symposium features lectures by a distinguished international panel of scholars, artists and curators.  Traumatic Histories will convene around questions arising from the exhibition, including curatorial issues, the role of artistic practice in reconciliation (along with a fundamental investigation of the concept of reconciliation) and a broader theoretical discussion around modernity and indigeneity. The symposium is made possible with assistance from the UBC Curatorial Lecture Series, supported by the Faculty of Arts and Audain Endowment for Curatorial Studies in the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory. Seating for the symposium is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
