Workshop series "Experimenting on Computational Governmentalities"

Thursday, June 10th, 10 am - 12 pm (EST) / 4 - 6 pm (CEST)

For the workshop series "Experimenting on Computational Governmentalities", we are excited to introduce to you three guests to join us in a roundtable discussion: Suzanne Kite, Jason Lewis, and Ezekiel Dixon-Romàn. Our discussion will start with existing computational governmentalities as the participants present particular objects (or conceptions/ideas/practices) illustrating the necessity for an alternative mode of thinking about and creating technologies in the contemporary computational landscape. By bringing in cultural studies of quantification, Indigenous protocols of AI, and artistic media practices, we aim to trace the question of difference in the existing computational paradigm, with particular emphasis on the design practices themselves. We will be circulating introductory material closer to date. You can find the event link here.

What Happens After the End? with Suzanne Kite

What Happens After the End? with Suzanne Kite

In the aftermath of a traumatic event(s), how does one shape their practice beyond survival and towards new ways of being? This four-part series will include guests from different artistic disciplines speaking in conversation to examine and unpack what it means to create and be a maker in this contemporary moment. Organized and moderated by Erika Hodges, the series examines a set of issues including but not limited to: process, intentional community, far-reaching trauma and how it impacts our art practice, as well as new possibilities that may have arisen over the last year for how work can look or be made. Each guest will share work or perform, followed by a short Q&A with the audience.

MOMENTA Biennale
September 8 to October 24, 2021
Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal 

Kite will be presenting her new work, done in collaboration with The New Red Order (Adam Khalil- Ojibway, United Snakes, Zack Khalil- Ojibway, United States, Jackson Polys- Tlingit, United States), New Red Order: The Last of the Lemurians. This solo exhibition by New Red Order interrogates the politics of power absorbed into forged and false history as it critically and humorously punctures racist theories and romanticized beliefs. The exhibition will be presented at Centre Clarke as part of the 17th edition of the MOMENTA Biennale. 

The 17th edition of the biennale will take place from September 8 to October 24, 2021 under the title Sensing Nature. An ambitious edition curated by Stefanie Hessler in collaboration with Camille Georgeson-Usher, Maude Johnson, and Himali Singh Soin, MOMENTA 2021 brings together 51 artists from 24 countries, their works are presented in 15 exhibitions including an Indigenous-led outdoor garden and an augmented reality circuit in the public space.

This edition of MOMENTA can be read in multiple ways. On the one hand, it assumes a human who is sensing nature, perhaps holding a blueberry picked in a forest, exposed to various modes of perception: sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch. On the other hand, it assumes nature sensing back. Our doings register like sunlight bleaching the colour of driftwood over time or imprinting itself on the retina of an exposed eye. In acknowledging this reciprocity, the biennale recognizes that we are in relation with nature, that we are of nature.
