[talk] Thursday, October 11th, 6pm
Knot Project Space, 2 Daly Ave

Presented in collaboration with the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa, with special thanks to Jinny Yu.

— — — — — Knot Project Space is proud to launch its speaker series, 'Video in the Public Sphere,' with an opening talk by Berlin-based artist, writer and designer Patricia Reed. Having worked over the summer as Theory Researcher for Public Art Munich, Reed will speak to the underpinnings of this initiative as well as present a text that she generated in relation to its activities, titled 'Promiscuous Publicness and the Uncommon In-Common.'

— About Video in the Public Sphere — In October 2018, SAW Video Media Art Centre launches 'Knot Projections,' a unique capacity-building commissioning program funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation that explores the public context as a site for video projection. The initiative involves five regional artists who will each receive support to produce individual video works that are to be exhibited on an urban surface within Ottawa as a large-scale outdoor projection in Spring/Summer 2019. In lead up to this ambitious commissioning aspect of the program, the 'Video in the Public Sphere' speaker series aims to open up and sustain a discursive space in which the wider Ottawa community can navigate, expand upon, and challenge the notion of ‘publics’ through critical lenses and contemporary concerns. A series of visiting artists, critics and curators, working at the intersection of artistic production and public space, will engage with the complexities of this terrain from various points of entry. Each will deliver substantial talks at Knot Project Space about their work and research, and in some cases also conduct intensive follow-up workshops and discussion groups.

— About Promiscuous Publicness — Firstly, this two-part talk introduces the general framework of Public Art Munich 2018 (directed by Joanna Warsza), a performative series of art and discursive events that took place over a three-month period during the summer. As the theory researcher for the series, Reed will discuss some of the concepts concerning our understanding of 'publicness' today that helped to contextualize the diverse artistic interventions, each of which occurred in a unique location across the city of Munich. The second part of the talk addresses the transformation of the public sphere in view of networked communications technologies, arguing for the need to grasp publicness today through the logic and political dynamics of the platform.
