Dr Jeanne Randolph is a Canadian cultural theorist, performer and author who is renowned for her method of ficto-critical writing that emerged in Canada in the 1980s. Randolph was also the first and only writer in Canada to develop Object Relations Psychoanalytic Theory as a medium for cultural criticism. As part of the art writing and knowledge production panel, Randolph will unravel some of the assumptions about what (else) art writing can do.  Her presentation might possibly resemble a stand-up theory performance.

CAMPER (Contemporary Art Mobile Public Exhibition Rig) is a 1975 Dodge Empress motor-home, modified to become a portable public exhibition and project space.  CAMPER’s mandate is to investigate the places where art, the road, education, and recreation meet, and to explore these intersections in an inclusive, participation-oriented manner that fosters public engagement and appreciation of contemporary art practices.
