This exhibition has been organised in conjunction with the International Visual Sociology Association Annual Conference 2013 that takes place at Goldsmiths, University of London.
investigates art-practices and visual research strategies that consider and challenge the affective and emotional dimensions of race, sexuality and gender-constructs in art and society. It provides a compelling argument for an aesthetic engagement with affect and offers an insight into the ways in which social research remains concerned with the role and possibilities of feeling.
The art show and conference talk bring together the most exciting minds from social science and visual arts, both new talent as well as established international contributors to explore these issues. The group show runs over three days and includes sound and textile installations, video-art, photography, film screening and talks from 17 contributors from 10 different countries.
