Lunch on Art: Stéphanie McKnight

Lunch on Art: Stéphanie McKnight, Art As Function-creep

The Calgary Institute for the Humanities, Creative and Practice-based Working Group, and the Department of Art are pleased to present, Stephanie McKnight: Art as Function-Creep. Light lunch included!

Wed October 11 | 12 p.m. | AB 672

Creative research prompts new ways of thinking through contemporary fields of study and encourages transdisciplinary critique and exploration of current social, political and cultural events. McKnight's practice looks at how art and objects are not only products of knowledge, but producers and activators of knowledge. As such, this talk will address the ways McKnight's body of work is inspired and influenced by contemporary surveillance trends and technologies in Canada, and how they use surveillance technologies to critique systems of policy, governance and surveillance today.

About the Speaker: Stéphanie McKnight (Stéfy) is an artist and creative practitioner based in Kingston Ontario. Her art practice explores creative research as methodology, and the ways that events, artworks and objects produce knowledge and activate their audiences. Stéfy is a PhD student in the Cultural Studies programme at Queen’s University.
