“Different activities at CEREV’s media and exhibition spaces changed my students’ routines on campus; consequently affected their interactions with each other. For example, I encouraged students to work together when they edited their media projects. Several students reported that they received advice from their peers in the media lab. In other words, the lab setting plays a role in fostering a collective learning process.”

In our newest blog post, Dr. Tracy Zhang shares her reflections on working with CEREV’s facilities throughout her Fall 2014 Simone de Beauvoir Institute course Anti-Racist Feminist Media (WSDB498I).

En tant que commissaire, avec l’exposition « Narcotrafic and the art of violence » présentée au CEREV du 20 au 27 novembre 2014, je voulais répondre aux questions : Comment participer dans cet activisme artistique pour mobiliser la conscience collective et réfléchir sur le malaise social qui frappe aujourd’hui le Mexique ? Comment interpeler le public local canadien et le rendre participe de cette mobilisation sociale ?

In our newest blog post, Nuria Carton de Grammont shares her reflections on curating Narcotraffic and the Art of Violenve, shown in the CEREV Exhibition Lab November 20-27, 2014. The exhibition and its accompanying roundtable discussion were co-sponsored by the Chaire d’Etudes du Mexique Contemporain, the Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Internationales, and the Réseau d’etudes sur l’Amérique latine à Montréal.

Congratulations to Zohar Kfir and Megha Sehdev, CEREV affiliates showing their work at this year’s Ethnographic Terminalia exhibit at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Washington, D.C.!

With journalist and filmmaker Saransh Sugandh, Megha is presenting their photo project “ghar aur kaagaz: Home and Document,” which mimics documentary photography’s use of mundane and everyday “object tableaus.”

Zohar Kfir is presenting her documentary project “Points of View”, an ongoing interactive web documentary project based on video footage shot by Palestinians working with B’Tselem בצלם’s camera distribution project. Zohar mounted this project in our Exhibition Lab in February – March, 2014.
