Solomon Nagler and Kim Morgan awarded SSHRC Research Creation Grant
NSCAD faculty members Solomon Nagler (Media Arts) and Kim Morgan (Fine Arts), along with Martha Radice (Dalhousie University, Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology) have received a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Research Creation grant for their project Tracing the City: Interventions of Art in Public Space.
This three-year project explores an innovative combination of creative processes in the visual and media arts, principally in film (expanded cinema), public art (site-specific installations), and empirical qualitative research in the social sciences and humanities (urban social anthropology).
Collaborators include Christopher Kaltenbach (NSCAD Division of Design), Ellen Moffat (artist) and Erin E. Wunker (Dalhousie Department of English). The principle researchers will be presenting their research framework during the Cineflux Symposium at NSCAD University in May and at the 17th International Symposium on Electronic Art in Istanbul, Turkey in September.
