This session draws together the insights produced by SHIVERING, a three year, multi-disciplinary SSHRC funded investigation into the social role of objects, particularly art ob-jects, examined through the facetted lenses of art research, digital and multimedia art practice and contemporary anthropological theory…. We argue that paying attention to the life and agency of art objects creates an oppor-tunity for a theoretically useful critique of modernisms and post-modernisms.
VIA: Can you elaborate a bit more on what the social role of an art object is?
VIA: What differences are there between a traditional art object such as a painting and a digital or multimedia object when using these objects to comment on society?
VIA: Do you feel that digital and multimedia art is more or less relevant than traditional forms? Perhaps it is a question of difference instead?
VIA: What are a couple of highlights that you hope people will take away with them after attending the panel?
