Grad Fellow event.

About the Speaker

Matthew-Robin Nye is is a visual artist, cultural producer, and has exhibited, lectured and held residencies in Canada and abroad. He is a Joseph-Armand Bombardier PhD student at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture at Concordia University, in Montreal. Employing a research-creation methodology, Nye traverses the fields of contemporary art, process philosophy and performance theory to think towards the problem of creating a ‘queer utopic space’, a wildness which evolves alongside a continually renewing present; or, the production of multiplicities in performance, installation, text-based and conceptual practice. Art-making and artistic experience are used to think about how to bridge the fields of environmental philosophy and queer theory, harnessing their potentials to constitute a limitless subject, unbounded by the pitfalls of either discourse in its singularity.
