The OCAD Faculty of Art presents:

Wednesday, May 19
Talk: 6 p.m. in Rm 284
Reception and book launch: 7 to 8 p.m. in Rm 187

The Criticism & Curatorial Practice program in the Faculty of Art and the Criticism & Curatorial Practice Graduate program at the Ontario College of Art & Design are pleased to present an evening with curator Sarah Cook. Please join us for a discussion about how the participatory, immaterial, and time-based qualities of media art challenge traditional curatorial ways of working.

Sarah Cook is a curator and writer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and co-author with Beryl Graham of the book Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media (MIT Press). She is currently a research fellow at the University of Sunderland where she co-founded and co-edits CRUMB, the online resource for curators of new media art and teaches on the MA Curating course. In 2011 she will co-chair Rewire, the Fourth International Conference on the histories of media, science and technology in art with FACT in Liverpool.

Reception and Book Launch, Room 187, the Lambert Lounge: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
