Remaking Research – Emerging Research Practices in Art and Design

Emily Carr University of Art + Design
Darwin, the Centre for Applied Art and Material Production, Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

We are pleased to announce the full list of contributors for the upcoming symposium, Remaking Research, which will take place at Emily Carr University in Vancouver next month. Remaking Research is an AICAD “working symposium” centred on the pragmatics and possibilities of creative practice as research, both within art and design institutions and in the context of interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and partnered relations. The symposium is an ideal chance for faculty and administrators who engage with research in the fields of art and design to come together and network, share best practices, new methods of working, and the innovative opportunities presented through their work.

Keynote and Plenary
The symposium’s keynote and plenary addresses will be given by Graeme Sullivan, Director of the School of Visual Arts, Pennsylvania State University and Carol Strohecker, Director, the Center for Design Innovation, University of North Carolina.

Participants
Discussions will bring together faculty and administrators from across AICAD institutions including Lisa Grocott, Associate Dean, Parsons, New School; Joanna Berzowska, Associate Professor and Chair of Design and Computation Arts, Concordia University; Anne Burdick, Chair, Media Design Program, Art Center College of Design; Pamela Jennings, Director, Brenda and Earl Shapiro Centers for Research and Collaboration, School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Sara Diamond, President, OCAD University; Rosanne Somerson, Provost, Rhode Island School of Design; Ezri Tarazi, Head of Industrial Design, Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem; Debera Johnson, Academic Director of Sustainability, Pratt Institute; and Sanjit Sethi, Director, Centre for Art and Public Life, California College of Art.

Panels, discussions and featured projects will address three key themes:

 

• The Production of Knowledge in Art and Design
• The Political Economies of Art and Design Research
• Networked and Partnered Research

 

Remaking Research will also showcase Featured Research Projects from more than 15 institutions engaged in creative research.

Registration open until October 15, 2012 at aicad.ecuad.ca*
Registration is 300 CAD for the event and includes breakfasts and lunches.

*Space is very limited, and individuals interested in attending or participating are encouraged to register early. We welcome faculty and administrators from non-AICAD institutions to attend, and a limited number of spots have been reserved for this.
