Erin Manning holds a University Research Chair in Relational Art and Philosophy in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). She is also the director of the SenseLab, a laboratory that explores the intersections between art practice and philosophy through the matrix of the sensing body in movement. In her art practice she works between painting, dance, fabric and sculpture. Current iterations of her artwork explore emergent collectivities through participatory textiles. Her project Stitching Time will be presented at the 2012 Sydney Biennale and The Knots of Time will open the new Flax Museum in Kortrijk, Belgium in 2014. Her writing addresses movement, art, experience and the political through the prism of process philosophy, with recent work developing a notion of autistic perception and the more-than human.  

Publications include Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy (Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 2009), Politics of Touch: Sense, Movement, Sovereignty (Minneapolis: Minnesota University Press, 2007) and Ephemeral Territories:  Representing Nation, Home and Identity in Canada (Minneapolis: Minnesota University Press, 2003). Her forthcoming manuscript, Always More Than One: Individuation's Dance will be published by Duke University Press in 2012 as will her forthcoming co-written manuscript (with Brian Massumi), Thought in the Act: Passages in the Ecology of Experience (Minnesota UP).

Erin Manning détient une chaire de recherche en philosophie et art relationnel de la Faculté des beaux-arts de l'université Concordia. Elle est également directrice du SenseLab, un laboratoire de recherche qui explore les intersections entre la création artistique et la philosophie à partir de la matrice du corps sensible en mouvement.

Son oeuvre Stitching Time sera présentée à la Biennale de Sydney 2012 en Australie, et The Knots of Time sera inaugurée lors de l'ouverture du Musée du Lin à Kortrijk en Belgique en 2014. Ses écrits ont comme sujet le mouvement, l'art et la politique vu à travers le prisme de la philosophie processuelle; les projets les plus récents explorent la perception autistique et le "plus-qu'humain." Ses publications incluent: Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy (Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 2009), Politics of Touch: Sense, Movement, Sovereignty (Minneapolis: Minnesota UP, 2007) and Ephemeral Territories: Representing Nation, Home and Identity in Canada (Minneapolis: Minnesota UP, 2003).
