From Glissant unfixed and unbounded
Inspired by the poetry and philosophy of Martiniquan writer Edouard Glissant (1928-2011), this international event is an attempt to generate poetics of relation from Toronto’s current political and artistic context toward his theory of “le Tout-Monde” (The Whole-World). In a time where borders and walls are erected and war seems endless, artists, thinkers, poets and performers are taking up the work of Glissant. Over three days and including participating members of the public, they will present interactive, project-based engaging ways of exchanging knowledge and building new imaginaries.
The event is co-presented by Elegoa Cultural Productions and the AGO and supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, through the Sector Innovation and Development Program. The curatorial process is lead in collaboration with artists by Catherine Sicot (Elegoa), Wanda Nanibush (AGO) and Pamela Edmonds (McMaster Museum of Art).
Presented as part of the symposium, please join us for AGO Live: Miho Hatori - Salon Mondialité.
