3e ProjectA conversation Wednesday will discuss the three ecologies: social, environmental, and conceptual.

Artist-scholars to discuss work of creation

The Propeller Project will host a conversation over Zoom with artist-scholars Erin Manning and Brian Massumi on Wednesday, Nov. 24.

They promise a wide-ranging conversation about research creation, property, alter economies, radical pedagogies, and their latest endeavour, the 3ecologies Project.

Dr. Manning is a professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University, studying in the interstices of philosophy, aesthetics, and politics, concerned, always, about alter-pedagogical and alter-economic practices. Her current research explores the transversality of the three ecologies: the social, the environmental, and the conceptual. An iteration of 3e is a land-based project north of Montreal where living and learning is explored. Legacies of SenseLab infuse the project, particularly the question of how collectivity is crafted in a more-than human encounter with worlds in the making.

Dr. Massumi is a professor in the Department of Communication Sciences at the Université de Montréal and the author of numerous works across philosophy, political theory, and art theory. His publications include Couplets: Travels in Speculative Pragmatism (2021), 99 Theses for the Revaluation of Value (2018), and Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation (augmented second edition 2021). With Manning and the 3Ecologies Project, he participates in the collective exploration of new ways of bringing philosophical and artistic practices into collaborative interaction.
