December 17th Writing As Practice: Perpherial Continuity, a Symposium and Unconference


featuring speakers: Moyra Davey, Zoe Leonard, Lynne Tillman and Carlos Motta

The class of 2012 ICP-Bard announces its first symposium/ Unconference in collaboration with Bard Curatorial Studies Program. Writing as Practice: Peripheral Continuity aims to investigate the role and use of the written word in current artistic practices, and will take place at The International Center of Photography on December 17, 2011. The event features an innovative format, which combines the structure of the symposium and less formal approach of unconference sessions.

The discussion will open within the historical context of the pre-internet era of the 1970s and 80s when the literary and art scenes intersected and cross-pollinated. Within this context, the
gathered writers, visual artists and curators will create a platform for discussion around new ideas concerning artistic practice and narrative writing as a convergence and/or partnership.

This exciting format introduces a hybrid between the structure of a symposium and the less formal approach of an Unconference. The Unconference aims to facilitate communal dialogue on topics relevant or irrelevant to the symposium’s central theme.

At the conclusion of the day there will be a closing party, along with ICP-Bard MFA Open studios, at the Long Island City Studio space. (24-20 Jackson Ave, Court Sq. 7,G,E,M)
