 The colloquium Aisthesis and the Common: Reconfiguring the Public Sphere will take place at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, 185, rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, on March 18 and 19, 2016. The event is free and open to the public. No advance registration is required.

We suggest using public transportation to come to the museum, as parking spaces are relatively expensive and rare during weekdays in downtown Montreal.
