Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Len­noxville

TheFore­man Art Gallery of Bishop’s Univer­sity is pleased to present a spe­cial evening with artist col­lec­tive Spurse on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 16, 2012, at 6pm, at the Trem­plin 16-30 (95 Welling­ton South). This free spe­cial event kicks off Spurse’s res­i­dency at the Gallery by rais­ing ques­tions in their sig­na­ture method of re­search: hand­son, un­scripted, pas­sion­ate and side­ways. As part of the feast of food and ideas will be open di­a­logue be­tween the public and the artists con­cern­ing no­tions of sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment in the re­gion. The Blind Feast will in­clude a shind­ing of foods, ideas and ad­ven­tures, to cook up with who­ever and what­ever shows up; a cel­e­bra­tion to mark the be­gin­ning of some­thing; an in­vi­ta­tion to co-shape fu­ture worth hav­ing and a mo­ment to sense the worlds we make, when and how we come to­gether.

Spurse is a re­search and de­sign col­lec­tive that coshapes prob­lems worth hav­ing with com­mu­ni­ties worth mak­ing. They build ap­pa­ra­tuses for so­cial and eco­log­i­cal change that are de­signed in place and in real-time for, with and by the agency of hu­mans and non-hu­mans alike. Spurse en­tan­gle with un­likely ques­tions to trans­form our per­cep­tions and to pro­duce un­ex­pected out­comes that en­dure long af­ter we’re in­volved.

Please join us. No blind­folds re­quired. The dis­cus­sion will take place pri­mar­ily in English with in­for­mal French trans­la­tion avail­able, in light of the bilin­gual re­al­ity of our re­gion. While the event is free, please RSVP as space is limited.
