About

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 (www.senselab.ca), a laboratory that explores the intersections between art practice and philosophy through the matrix of the sensing body in movement. Her current art practice is centred on large-scale participatory installations that facilitate emergent collectivities. Current art projects are focused around the concept of minor gestures in relation to colour, movement and participation. Publications include Always More Than One: Individuation’s Dance (Duke UP, 2013), Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy (Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 2009) and, with Brian Massumi, Thought in the Act: Passages in the Ecology of Experience (Minnesota UP, 2014) and The Minor Gesture (Duke UP, 2016).

 

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 (www.senselab.ca), 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. Artiste, elle travaille entre la peinture, la danse, les textiles et la sculpture. Ses projects récents explorent les collectivités émergentes et le geste mineur. 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: Politics of Touch: Sense, Movement, Sovereignty (Minneapolis: Minnesota UP, 2007), Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy (Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 2009), Always More Then One : Individuation’s Dance  (Durham: Duke UP 2012), Thought in the Act : Passages in the Ecology of Experience, coécrit avec Brian Massumi (Minnesota UP), et The Minor Gesture (Duke UP, 2016).
