Culture X: Bodies in Nature, Bodies Online
Jun 2 - Aug 31
The past year has been a mass experiment in digital contingency where we have sought to explore a world together from afar. In the Cultural Studies Department at Trent University, this has meant rethinking our pedagogical approaches to research-creation and to the discourse surrounding art, culture, and theory. The students in our studio courses found innovative and insightful ways to engage with artistic production quite literally from their bedrooms, becoming one of the strongest cohorts of emerging artists we’ve seen in years. Their body of work crosses disciplines, mediums, and theoretical approaches, questioning and problematizing digitality, the body, identity, movement, nature, and the ontology of art in an age of contagion. These artworks were created in a handful of courses encompassing the Cultural Studies integrated arts platform and submitted for the Gregory R. Frith Memorial Prize: CUST 2172H: Performance and Protest, CUST2186H: Photography, CUST3111H: Visual Arts Studio, CUST3142H: Experimental Music, and CUSTCUST4586H: Cinema in the Digital Age.
