Wednesday, 07 March 2012
Gendai Workstation (1265 Bloor Street West)
8 PM

Excerpts from Claire Bishop + Boris Groys’s Bring the Noise, Brian O’Doherty’s Inside the White Cube and Jacques Rancière’s The Emancipated Spectator have been chosen by Braden Labonte, Director of the mMOCCA and Yan Wu, Programming Director of the Gendai Workstation, in collaboration with the AHGSA, to be read aloud and discussed by participants at March’s No Reading After the Internet.

No Reading is a salon series that aims to provoke theoretical illumination on particular art works and the broader scope in which they exist. No Reading means to offer an engaged pedagogical space where participants can retrace the steps used in constructing understanding, productively challenging individual and collective ways through the realms of language and interpretation. To participate in No Reading is to invoke an exuberant not-knowing, seeking out moments of collective illumination. 

The Art History Graduate Students Association is a student-run organization open to all members of the York University community. The AHGSA seeks to represent the interests of those in the graduate programme in Art History.

No Reading After the Internet (Toronto) is supported by the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto. Special thanks to the Gendai Workstation for their support of this salon.
