Structures of Anticipation: A Symposium
Artists, writers and researchers from across North America have come together at the University of Windsor to develop and exhibit work that responds to the idea that anticipation is as much a social phenomenon as it is a psychological one.
Nervous anticipation, buoyed by real time political events on social media, creates a charged atmosphere where 240 characters or click-bait memes overwhelm fact, and evoke an intensity of responses. Information drowns out meaning and thoughtfulness, generating the "sensation" of anticipation. Anxiety and trepidation swirl, as we navigate social, political and economic turbulence that seems infinitely deferred.
Please join us for the following events:
Thursday, May 23rd: Book launch and readings for Feelings of Structure: Explorations in Affect.
Edited by Karen Engle and Yoke-Sum Wong. (McGill-Queen's University Press.)
Time & Place: 6:30-8pm at SB Contemporary. 1017 Church Street.
Friday, May 24th: Opening reception for Structures of Anticipation exhibition
at SB Contemporary, 1017 Church Street, from 5pm-8pm.
