Écotones: Urban Laboratory

2022-10-14 @ 16:00

Clusters: Speculative Life

DATE: From October 14th to October 28th
LOCATION: Champ des Possibles, 5605 Av. de Gaspé, Montréal

Speculative Life members Brice Ammar-Khodja and Philippe Vandal are happy to invite you to Écotones, an urban laboratory combining artistic interventions and a round table to articulate an aesthetic, critical and social reflection on soil pollution in Montreal. Through two experimental artistic installations on the Champ des Possibles site, Écotones explores urban soil pollution as a creative material. Aspiring to concretize new visualizations of pollution, the artists desire to initiate a dialogue between the citizen, academic and artistic communities on the issues emerging from urban soil contamination.

Organized in partnership with the Association Les Amis du Champ des Possibles, these interventions will take the form of several activities organized between October 14th and October 28th. Join us in October 14th for the round table at 4 PM (the meeting point will be communicated one day before the event), and for the vernissage at 6 PM!

To register for the side events happening on October 16, 17, 22 and 23 please get in contact with brice.ammar-khodja@mail.concordia.ca for more information.

Ecotones is supported by the Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) on Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Communities and Cities at Concordia University, Haute École des Arts du Rhin (France), Sustainability Action Fund (SAF), Hexagram, Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture, and Technology, and Concordia University Research Chair in Critical Practices in Materials and Materiality.
