The Presence exhibition featured visual contributions from 10 PhD students, postdocs, and faculty in the Department of Anthropology at McGill University. Presence was about the politics of engagement and the complex intricacies of space and place. Presence pondered relationships between socialized, politicized, constructed, and naturalized environments, between researchers and their varied interlocutors, and between academia and art. Most importantly, Presence created a public, common space where we can collectively engage with these questions and the pressing issues connected to our research practices
