This intimate two-day colloquium is the first in what we hope will be subsequent gatherings of artists and cultural professionals who have an interest in exploring the particular research cultures that evolve around contemporary artistic practice. This initial session welcomes participation from an intentionally broad range of disciplinary perspectives including practicing artists, museum and gallery professionals, library scientists, archivists, and art school educators.

The Compulsive Browse is a two-year research project by Rebecca Duclos supported by the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art at Concordia University. The project encompasses three main areas of activity that directly involve artists, scholars, faculty and students in questioning the means and methods of “research” that are used by contemporary Canadian cultural practitioners today.
