Thursday 3 November, 2016, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.

CU students and friends! This fall at Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG), we’re having another after-hours Art Party!

Explore our exhibitions with art-making activities organized by the Carleton Art History Students Association, including special guest artist Morgan Sea, who will be leading a drop-in workshop on zines. Draw, collage, cut, photocopy, and collaborate on these DIY publications. All materials are provided.

Poetry and performance unite the artists in “We Are Continually Exposed to the Flashbulb of Death”: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg (1953-1996) and TRANSACTIONS, as they explore queer identity and community. Inspired by this, Carleton’s poetry magazine In/Words Magazine has organized a poetry reading by local poets.

We’ll be serving treats, coffee, tea, and pop as well!

Doors open at 7 p.m. and performances begin at 8 p.m. Admission is FREE and everyone is welcome! Post your photos on Instagram with #CUAGArtParty.

Organized in collaboration with Carleton Art History Undergraduate Society and In/Words Poetry Magazine.

Lunchtime Lecture: Imagining a Global Ethic of Care:  Towards a New Humanitarianism

Wednesday, 9 November 2016, 12:15 p.m.

Wednesday, 9 November, 2016, 12:15 p.m. – 1 p.m.

Each semester, we showcase a Carleton faculty member whose academic interests complements one of our current exhibitions, and invite them to give a talk on their research.

In Patricia Reed: The One and the Many, Reed’s works examine the place of individuals in a world divided into nations. In the face of unprecedented global challenges, we might re-imagine alternative models of belonging and systems of exchange, founded upon what we have in common, rather than what divides us. For this Lunchtime Lecture, Fiona Robinson (Department of Political Science) will build a picture of a global feminist ethic of care. In particular, she will focus on the ethics of care as a moral framework for addressing the challenges of humanitarianism in a manner that foregrounds human needs while not depoliticizing or taking for granted the category of ‘human.’

Bring your lunch, the gallery will provide coffee and tea, and we’ll all learn something new!

Fiona Robinson is Professor of Political Science specializing in International Relations and Political Theory. She holds am MPhil (1992) and PhD (1995) from the University of Cambridge, an MA in International Affairs from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (1991). She is the author of The Ethics of Care: A Feminist Approach to Human Security (Temple University Press, 2011) and Globalizing Care: Ethics, Feminist Theory and International Relations (Westview Press, 1999).

Curator’s talk by Cara Tierney, Gender Qu(e)eries: how did we get here?:

Thursday, 24 November 2016, 7:00 p.m.

Cis-what? trans-who? monosexism? THEY?? Please join us for a presentation and discussion on gender, vocabulary/language, self-representation, and allyship, hosted by Cara Tierney. This talk is presented in conjunction with TRANSACTIONS , curated by Tierney, and is open to all.

Raised in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, Cara Tierney is an interdisciplinary artist whose work questions the role of gender and its relationship to the material body. Using the body as a point of departure Tierney often foregrounds issues of sexuality and gender to question how society impacts our relationship to our own bodies and ultimately our identities, both private and public. Tierney holds an MA in Art History, an MFA, and is pursuing a Ph.D at Carleton University.
