Video Screening & Lecture: Akomfrah, Bowen, McNeil
The Ellen Gallery presents a screening of Toronto-based Deanna Bowen’s sum of the parts: what can be named alongside British artist John Akomfrah’s portrait of the late sociologist and theorist Stuart Hall, The Stuart Hall Project.
Bridging these two works, Daniel McNeil, Professor of History, Migration and Diaspora Studies at Carleton University, will discuss Hall’s elliptical thinking, learning from living archives, and forms of radical nostalgia.
This program examines how the biographic, autobiographic, and documentary forms as well as research on the long term must navigate the entanglements of memory, lacuna, event and experience.
