[in-tur-pri-tey-shunz] is an interdisciplinary exhibition that explores the intersections between contemporary art and oral history. As artists develop aesthetic innovations in storytelling, how are they influencing social memory through their narrative interpretations? What are the salient considerations and challenging questions around shared authorship and collaborative ethics that are raised by these works?

[in-tur-pri-tey-shunz] est une exposition interdisciplinaire qui explore les croisements entre l’art contemporain et l’histoire orale. Alors que les artistes développent des innovations esthétiques en art du conte, on peut se demander comment ceux-ci influencent la mémoire sociale à travers leurs interprétations narratives. Quelles sont les considérations saillantes et les questions posant de grands défis autour de la paternité partagée et des éthiques de collaboration soulevées par ces œuvres?

Exhibiting Artists:

The exhibition includes engaging installations, related public events and an on-line space for shared commentary – all of which are proposed opportunities for reflection and discussion. The participating artists were encouraged to consider this exhibition as a period of conceptual incubation and interactive research, whereby public reaction may contribute insight for the evolution of the works.

Thematic overtones that may be traced between the works are coincidental; all works were independently conceived of and developed.
