GRIDLOCK: A Graduate Student Conference + Pop-Up Exhibition

GRIDLOCK is a 2-day graduate student conference and 3-day art exhibition (October 13-15) hosted by the Department of Cultural Analysis and Theory (previously the Department of Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies) at Stony Brook University. This year, we have the amazing opportunity to host our conference in collaboration with the AC Institute, a premier gallery space in the Chelsea arts district of Manhattan. Our entire conference will take place on-site in the gallery location, surrounded by the works of emerging artists and graduate students.

EXHIBITED ARTISTS: Nobuho Nagasawa, Joanna Malinowska, John David Lopez, Ana Cantoni, Shannon Hayes, Jon Gourley, Jonathan Jackson, Mauricio Herrero, Anna Kell & Jon Frey

We are very excited to welcome Eugene Thacker as this year's keynote speaker, presenting his talk "Frozen Thought; or, the Horror of Philosophy". Dr. Thacker is an Associate Professor of Media Studies at The New School. This talk is related to his upcoming book, In the Dust of This Planet: The Horror of Philosophy, Vol. 1. A small number of these books will be on sale at our conference.

The AC Institute is located at: 547 W. 27th St, 6th Floor | New York, NY 10001
