Visulising Affect

About

From 8 to 10 July 2013, the Lewisham Arthouse in London is hosting a group exhibition titled Visualising Affect. It is organised in conjunction with the International Visual Sociology Association Annual Conference 2013 that takes place at Goldsmiths, University of London. The exhibition is curated by Katalin Halász and Polly Card. Visualising Affect investigates art-practices and visual research strategies that consider and challenge the affective and emotional dimensions of race, sexuality and gender-constructs in art and society. It provides a compelling argument for an aesthetic engagement with affect and offers an insight into the ways in which social research remains concerned with the role and possibilities of feeling. The art show and conference talk bring together the most exciting minds from social science and visual arts, both new talent as well as established international contributors to explore these issues. The group show runs over three days and includes sound and textile installations, video-art, photography, film screening and talks from 17 contributors from 10 different countries. Artists and visual sociologists participating in Visualising Affect are Sutapa Biswas, Sandra De Berduccy, Nirmal Puwar, Yasmin Gunaratnam, Julio Gonzáles Sánchez, Karin Michalski, Laura Cuch and Yvonne Füegg. Films by Jane Kin Kaisen and Guston Sondin-Kung, Jack Tan, Justin Archer, Martin Bleazar and Rosanna Scott, and by Konstantinos Panapakidis are screened as a special event to the exhibition. A panel talk with academics Allison Carter and Rachel Clarke and exhibiting visual practitioners Laura Cuch and Konstantios Panapakidis takes place on 9 July as part of the International Visual Sociology Association Annual Conference 2013.
