talk, seminar, debate, curator-in-action

Lecture on the environmental responsibility of artists and curators: - - - - - - What are the roles of contemporary artists and curators when confronted with the emergence of problematic environmental situations? What are the cultural, political and social contexts that form the interdisciplinary research under which their activities and observations take place? Socio-political? Meta-projects instigated by data flows, results of scientific research? Aesthetic factors? Radical imaginary situations or attitudes? New forms of journalism? What forms of international, accessible and open platforms of dissemination can be made available to such practice in order to best facilitate its impact on social,legal, scientific, cultural and geopolitical activity? - - - - - - - Following up, Alfredo Cramerotti and Mary Conlon acted as 'curators in action', picking up on ideas and link across them as the day progressed. The curator session at the end of the day provided an opportunity to reflect on how the activity of the day might be advanced as a future event as symposium/exhibition. - - - - - - - - more info at: http://www.insidespace.org.uk/Eco-tone/Object_Space_Entaglements.html
