Resulting from a keynote performance and subsequent panel discussion at OCADu Graduate Conference, The Multiple Li(v)es of Art/ists &... Disciplinary Fuziness and the Future(s) of Art Criticism, this month's episode explores the work of New York-based Canadian Artist, Brendan Fernandes. Probing Fernandes's experience as an artist and a dancer, this episode also documents Encomium, a performance which circles hybrid themes of identity, love, labour, and public space. 

Video of Encomium can be found here, or at brendanfernandes.ca

Theme music for What it Looks Like comes from Paul Weadick, with additional music in this episode from Podington Bear.
