ARTIST-RUN CENTRE TABLING EVENT AT ELLEN GALLERY
An event introducing fine arts students to a sample of what Montreal artist run culture has to offer by introducing them to the people who run these organizations in person. A wide cross-section of artist run centres and organizations will be attending.
Through a conference and artist projects in spring 2018, Art & Social Strata will address the formal, political and ethical dimensions of socially and politically-engaged art practices. Motivated by increasingly precarious working conditions, rising levels of student debt, and profound systemic inequality, the program seeks to critically reflect on the relation between social stratification and contemporary cultural production.
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country./
