CCAM’s Symposium is a biannual event that brings together artists and audiences to explore a timely theme. Our Spring 2023 Symposium, Ultra Space, takes up earthly reference frames for understanding the body in space. Inspired by the work of Arakawa and Gins, we consider the body as a part of its architectural surroundings. Interdisciplinary encounters will suggest shared reconfigurations of spatial and material form: embodiment that can be perceived, non-linear time at different scales and speeds, and ways to question and understand our own sentient volumes. Join us for discussions, workshops, performances, an exhibition, and more!
