Encounter in art.

Douglas, Anne


Anne Douglas


This presentation explores how 'encounter' is different from 'event' and making this differentiation has important implications on how we imagine the relationship of art to audience. The author introduces some theoretical foundations to the notion of 'encounter' and then explores an imaginary scenario where artwork is viewed in a new way.
