Seminar: Reading as Methodology

Public conference presented in collaboration with the Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery

Thursday, January 21, from 6 PM to 8 PM

The result of a close collaboration between Artexte and the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, this public seminar aims to deepen reflections on the epistemological, cultural, social, political and ethical issues pertaining to reading as methodology. Presented at Artexte in conjunction with the exhibition Reading Exercises, the seminar will feature several speakers (artists, researchers, curators, authors and activists) for whom the practice of reading is a site of experimentation, inquiry, or essential critical engagement. In bringing together these various perspectives on the act of reading and its methodological implications, the discussion hopes to address the relationship between textuality and morality, the process of reading, its contemporary modes and settings, as well as the exchanges among academic, artistic, cultural and community contexts that reading makes possible.
