T&M in Sights of Feeling: The Milieux Institute Expo

Sights of Feeling: The Milieux Institute Expo

October 19, 2018, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Milieux’s first Expo, Sights of Feeling, is an institute-wide exhibition featuring the work of 30 student members across all eight of Milieux’s research clusters. Several of our cluster members participated in the Expo, including Ryth Kesselring, Jessica Bebenek, Alice Jarry, Suzanne Kite, Lucas LaRochelle, Charline Lemieux, and Skawennati.


Sights of Feeling explores the embodied, qualitative and ‘feeling’ encounters provoked in the act of research-creation work. The ethnographic, game-based, performative, photographic, sculptural and written works in this exhibition create a space for witnessing care, empathy and marginalized voices. Sights of Feeling seeks to reveal some of the many ways in which research-creation work at Milieux ‘sees others’ and ‘makes seen’ through encounters outside of the more traditional bounds and segmented disciplinary knowledges of academia. Processual techniques of practicing and disseminating research in the academic milieu are made visible here, within, around and outside the Institute; gesturing towards a fleeting grasp on what it means to make, and to witness, research-creation practices.
