Join us on May 27, from 1-5pm EST, for the launch of the Centre for Sustainable Curating.
The Centre for Sustainable Curating is located in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. The CSC encourages research into waste, pollution, and climate crisis, and the development of exhibitions and artworks with low carbon footprints.
Over the next year, the CSC will engage in a year-long visioning exercise to imagine, collaborate, and discuss the ways we can take seriously the goal of the Centre to be sustainable in all ways: that is, sustainable in teaching about best ecological practices for exhibition making, sustainable in how we might engage with the world around us, and sustainable in the outcomes built through our efforts.
At this event, we will present work from CSC postdocs, host a panel on Radical Pedagogy and Curation, and launch the Synthetic Collective’s catalogue Plastic Heart: A DIY Fieldguide for Reducing the Environmental Impact of Art Exhibitions.
