Inaugural lecture by Georges Didi-Huberman
Guests: Nicole Brossard, Katrie Chagnon, Philippe Despoix, Dalie Giroux,  Jean-François Hamel, Ginette Michaud, Tamara Vukov

The first of a series of public events organized as part of the Montreal presentation of Uprisings, this conference proposes to start from the question formulated by Georges Didi-Huberman in the introduction to the exhibition catalogue, namely: "How do images draw so often from our memories in order to give shape to our desires for emancipation? And how does a "poetic" dimension manage to be created in the very heart of our gestures of uprising and as a gesture of uprising?" This dialectic between memories and desires, which Didi-Huberman conceives according to a distinction between power and political potency, allows to deepen the theoretical stakes that underlie his project while situating the problematic of uprisings in the historical and political context of Canada and Québec. Following an inaugural lecture by the art historian and a period of dialogue with him, speakers from diverse backgrounds will be invited to discuss issues that echo both his thinking and the memories and desires that bear our past, present and future struggles.

Des voix qui s’élèvent is a one-day symposium organized by Marie Fraser, Annie Gérin, Dominic Hardy, Vincent Lavoie, Edith-Anne Pageot and Thérèse St-Gelais. In a transdisciplinary perspective, it gathers research and creation works around the theme speaking out, as well as testimonies of artists and activists whose works and actions provoke uprisings and social upheavals. The presentations will take the form of lectures, round tables and performances, and will address a multitude of issues including oppression, social marginalization, history exclusions and memorial wounds. With the support of the Département d’histoire de l’art, UQAM, the CRILQ, Centre interuniversitaire de recherches sur la littérature et la culture québécoises, and the research group "Archiver le présent? Imaginaire de l’exhaustivité dans les productions culturelles contemporaines".
