This one-day symposium invited audiences to consider different ways in which the relationship between still and moving images is mobilized in contemporary artistic practice. Featuring contributions from artists, curators and scholars, presentations covered theoretical and practice-led perspectives on the topic, offering new approaches to thinking about their relationship in an age of image proliferation.
Rebecca Comay, Professor of Philosophy and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto, joined afternoon presenters Leslie Hewitt, Filipa Ramos and Jean-Paul Kelly in a moderated discussion and Q&A period with the audience. Topics ranged from the critique of visuality and representation, impaired memory and investigations of digital image streams.
Following the moderated discussion, Joshua Heuman, Curator of Education and Public Programs at The Power Plant concluded the day with closing remarks that considered the themes and discussions addressed throughout the presentations.
