Strange Relations

In the spring of 2012, TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary is initiating a new chapter in its public engagement activities. Strange Relations: A Lecture Series is an innovative program that features a series of bilateral lectures on unrelated topics. Part battle royal and part anti-symposium, Strange Relations invites two experts from two different fields to speak about what they know best (i.e. Modern Painting VS High Kicking in Karate). Strange Relations is a both a participatory art project and a participatory lecture series about art through the examination of both art and non-art subjects where the audience is asked to find kinship or discord between the ideas (they have to connect the two lectures in any question they ask) – resulting in a multi-faceted conversation about interpretation, comprehension and humor. Strange Relations is a social space for knowledge sharing and production. Founded on experimentation and research, the series allows unrelated ideas to act as grounds for play.
