Worldings: A Virtual Conference

Presented by Griffin Art Projects and Urban Shaman, Worldings: A Virtual Conference brings together a weekend of collaborative panels and presentations facilitated live over Zoom exploring the unique artistic perspectives and histories that exist in Canadian and South African experience as seen through the eyes of artists, writers, curators and activists. Coinciding with the presentation of the solo exhibition William Kentridge: The Colander, curated by Lisa Baldissera, this virtual gathering reflects on the concept of 'the colander' and how the global events of 2020 expose, through the experiences that have unfolded in each place, unique histories of precarity, globalization and colonization, to focus on resilience and resistance.
Collaborative supporters include BAG Factory, a non-profit contemporary visual art organisation in Newtown, Johannesburg, The Centre for the Less Good Idea, an experimental, collaborative and cross-disciplinary arts organization and project space founded by William Kentridge, and the University of Regina's Faculty of Media, Art and Performance.
