(dis)location: art in a mobile age

8th Annual Concordia University Undergraduate Art History Conference

February 16th & 17th, 2019

From the movement and appropriation of cultural artefacts within early colonial missions, to the increasing digitization of mediums, museums, and the archive, art objects and their locations of presentation have created much of the basis of what we know as art history today. However, with the overwhelming technological advancements that have taken place over the last century, the world has seen major shifts in global communication, trade, and migration. These shifts, reflected considerably within the art market, have been subject to an array of critiques on power and distribution. Yet these shifts have also inspired the work of many contemporary artists to facilitate and create new virtual connections and spaces for those who had previously been excluded from traditional art spaces. Drawing on issues of representation, mobility, and location, from the past, present, and even the future, the 8th Annual Concordia University Undergraduate Art History Conference, (dis)location, delves into the role of place within art and society; and what follows when bodies and objects are displaced.

 

Taking place at Concordia University, on unceded Kanien’kehá:ka territory, (dis)location gestures to Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal’s own diverse experience of place; its role in the history of settler colonialism, Quebec Separatism, and its complex relationship to immigration. In line with this, the conference the Concordia Undergraduate Journal of Art History (CUJAH) encourages scholars, students, and artists to reflect on their own positionality in relation to the creation, distribution and theorisation of art.
