Alison Bremner is pleased to share she has been accepted for a thematic visual arts residency at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta.
The six week program will take place between November and December of 2014.
“Raymond Boisjoly will facilitate a residency for artists interested in what it means to question “in kind.” This program will offer artists the opportunity to discuss, explore, and understand the questions informing the practices of their fellow participants in proximity to their own concerns.
“In Kind” Negotiations will draw upon diverse perspectives, our own as well as those of others, to consider the idea that there is no particular way things are supposed to have been. From this position, we may begin to articulate current circumstances in order to situate our work as a strategic negotiation of a world in process. In anticipation of a present that will not always be our own, our questioning provides a provisional path outside and beyond things as they are now.
Through self-directed studio investigations, weekly gatherings, screenings, suggested readings, and casual discussions, participants may come to realize the potential of working in relation to one another in a complex, mutually delineated world.” – The Banff Centre website
