Introduction

March Meeting 2018 (MM 2018) explores issues of resistance through consideration of organising as a primary act of and condition for artistic and cultural production. Over three days, MM 2018 provides the opportunity to collectively examine practices in art, writing, film, music and architecture that extend engagement with present and past knowledges of resistance. In addition, MM 2018 seeks to examine the relationship between recognisable forms, such as projects, exhibitions, conferences and the surrounding informality from which these events emerge. How do questions of organising enable us to conceptualise resistance as not only ‘standing in opposition to’ but also one of practice and future planning? How might such thinking help us reassess art’s relationship to notions of authorship, agency, power and the public? MM 2018 will include artist talks, lecture performances, panel discussions and workshops on cultural and artistic production, institution building, architecture, infrastructure, music and literature.
