The Intersections of Queer Symposium is an attempt to create spaces for critical engagement with the complexities of LGBTQ* experiences, bodies, identities and communities. Based on a structural engagement with the intersections of queer identity, our goal is to support a series of workshops, discussions and facilitated spaces that share knowledge and facilitate collaborative learning around issues of race, class, ability, gender, mental health, spirituality, ethnicity, indigeneity, and citizenship in relation to queerness.
Wed, March 5th 2-9 pm and Thurs, March 6, 2-9 pm
Arts Based Research Studio 4th floor Education North Building.

"WAVELENGTH was shot in one week in December, 1966, preceded by a year of notes, thoughts, mutterings. It was edited and first print seen in May, 1967. I wanted to make a summation of my nervous system, religious inklings, and aesthetic ideas. I was thinking of, planning for a time monument in which the beauty and sadness of equivalence would be celebrated, thinking of trying to make a definitive statement of pure Film space and time, a balancing of "illusion" and "fact," all about seeing. The space starts at the camera’s (spectator’s) eye, is in the air, then is on the screen, then is within the screen (the mind). The film is a continuous zoom which takes 45 minutes to go from its widest field to its smallest and final field. It was shot with a fixed camera >from one end of an 80 foot loft, shooting the other end, a row of windows and the street …. The room (and the zoom) are interrupted by four human events including a death. The sound on these occasions is sync sound, music and speech, occurring simultaneously with an electronic sound, a sine-wave …. It is a total glissando while the film is a crescendo and a dispersed spectrum which attempts to utilize the gifts of both prophecy and memory which only film and music have to offer."
Barge Dirge 
16mm 7 mins b/w sound
"Built in 1972, The Rothesay Carrier, one of the largest sea-faring vessels of her kind ever constructed, spends one long lonely year trapped by ice in a Canadian Arctic hamlet. Subsequent to the shooting of this footage, she was crushed and melted for scrap. A portrait study of an object explored through the structure of film editing and the structure of the object itself."
peformances by noise makers:
(misfiring tape decks/ drum machine/ rap in rewind /rim-shots/ utter chaos)
Fatigue wave / space rituals / the sound of urban decay.
This event is only possible through the support of (among others) the amazing people at APIRG, CJSR and Listen Louder.
