How to Make Art at the End of the World: Show and Share with Natalie Loveless

April 8, 2021 at 3:00–5:00pm


As an intervention into normative scholarly practice, research-creation has gained increasing visibility and validity over the past decade within the academy. Often mobilizing interdisciplinary and collaborative methods, with one foot – always – firmly grounded in artistic literacies, research-creation asks us to attend, with detail, to the methods we mobilize as well as our modes of output and publication at the level of constitutive form. This Show and Share is an opportunity for grad students and faculty to think with Loveless through some of the frameworks and provocations laid out in her 2019 book How to Make Art at the End of the World: A Manifesto for Research-Creation.

Natalie S. Loveless teaches contemporary art and theory with a focus on feminist art, performance art, conceptual art, activist art, art-as-social-practice. Her recent books, How to Make Art at the End of the World: A Manifesto for Research-Creation and Knowings and Knots: Methodologies and Ecologies in Research-Creation examine debates surrounding research-creation and its institutionalization, paying particular attention to what it means – and why it matters – to make and teach art research-creationally in the North American university today. Forthcoming books include Responding to Site: The Performance Work of Marilyn Arsem and The Routledge Companion to Performance Art. She recently completed New Maternalisms, a project bringing together feminist art practice, theory and curation, and an interdisciplinary collaborative project on global vaccination called Immune Nations that culminated in a high-profile exhibition at UNAIDS in Geneva during the 2017 World Health Assembly.

Participants are asked to read the introduction to the book. The conclusion is suggested as well.
