    The MANIF D’ART 4 colloquium, under the direction of Nicole Gingras, unites guest artists and thinkers to reflect on the complexity of our relationship with others. Designed to complement the exhibitions of the biennial, the colloquium will explore aesthetic experiences relating to listening, observation and mediation. A laboratory for thought, these two days of reflection and discussion will provide exposure to artistic practices in which words, the music of language, sound and image become determining elements. The event will also include film, video and sound creations.
