Professor Erica Lehrer and post-doctoral fellow Monica Eileen Patterson invite you to visit the "Ethnographic Terminalia" exhibition and discover audio and video installations made by their students using Montreal Life Stories Project interviews.

"Ethnographic Terminalia is an annual exhibition of international artists and researchers working at the intersection of art and anthropology. From 15-19 November 2011, Ethnographic Terminalia welcomes visitors at Eastern Bloc Centre for New Media and Interdisciplinary Art in Montréal, Canada. This year’s show is organized in collaboration with Concordia University’s Centre for Ethnographic Research & Exhibition in the Aftermath of Violence (CEREV) and is scheduled to coincide with the 110th annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), which are convening in Canada for the first time. Ethnographic Terminalia brings anthropologists and artists together in the gallery space to investigate the borders and blurrings of contemporary art practice and alternative modes of cultural inquiry and representation. Ethnographic Terminalia is an exploration of what it might mean to exhibit anthropology – particularly in some of its less traditional forms – in proximity to and conversation with contemporary art practices."
