McLuhan Monday ‘The Net’
You’re invited to engage in conversation with artists, scholars, and citizens who explore the context of different media from the past, present and future. Stuart MacKay will be presenting the history of French Minitel and Marco Adria asks us, “_How has digital media changed how we experience privacy and security in the world? What effects are still playing a role today in the global theatre?”_
McLuhan Literati give context and history to our Media Seminar guest Stacey Cann, local artist and leader of the community. Stacey Cann will lead us through a discussion called Networked Art that will explore the economy of traditional arts vs artist run centres in Canada.
Stacey Cann is a multidisciplinary artist working in Edmonton, Alberta. She has shown at the Illingworth Kerr Gallery, The Ministry of Casual Living, Latitude 53 Contemporary Art, Harcourt House Artist Run Centre and the International Print Centre New York among others. Her work involves durational elements whose mundane nature borders on the absurd, and she is interested in how we present ourselves in the commonplace of our daily life. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Print Media from Alberta College of Art and Design as well as a Masters of Arts in Art Education from Concordia University.
Space is limited, and we only have room for about 20 participants. Click here to RSVP
We look forward to seeing you all on July 2nd at 6:30pm.
Arts Habitat Edmonton is a non-profit organization engaged in finding, managing, and developing space for the arts. We nurture, advocate for and build vibrant, healthy, and creative arts spaces.
