Public Lecture with Catherine Malabou
Empty Square v. Evolutionary Memory: The New Adventures of Signs

Liu Institute for Global Issues
6476 NW Marine Drive, UBC

The Belkin Art Gallery is thrilled to present a public lecture by Dr. Catherine Malabou, one of France’s leading philosophers whose work considers the concept of plasticity, which she derives in part from the work of Hegel as well as from medical science, for example, from work on stem cells and from the concept of neuroplasticity. Malabou’s contention that plasticity has become a major category in philosophy, arts, psychology, neurobiology and cell biology has opened up new perspectives on the way in which subjectivity and materiality, mind and body, are interrelated, along with new relationships between philosophy, arts and biology.

What's at Stake
Intertextual Indigenous Knowledges

Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre, Simon Fraser University, 149 West Hastings Street, Vancouver

What’s At Stake? Intertextual Indigenous Knowledges is an afternoon of talks, panels and a spoken word performance that examines knowledge, power, authority and sovereignty in the construction of artistic practices. Following on Intertextual: Art in Dialogue, a roving reading group that was held at participating galleries over the last year, this program is meant to function less like a syllabus and more like a web of ideas. Taking the critical historiography of Native Art of the Northwest Coast: A Changing History of Ideas (UBC Press, 2013) as a point of provocation, this event belongs to an intertextual discussion of artistic practice and the role of art institutions (from artist-run centres to public gallery models) in Vancouver.
