Art, Agency, Ecology: Sites and Citations
Curated by Hemera Collective
Leah Borromeo and Katharine Round of Disobedient Films with composer Jamie Perera
Opening drinks at ONCA, 22 October 4-6pm
An exhibition that brings together artists, film-makers, composers and academics who use research-led practice to interrogate the different modes of sharing and interpreting information and ideas relating to public space. In the context of the theme of Brighton Photo Fringe 2016 – the commons – and exhibiting in a space dedicated to the intersection of art and ecology, we will be considering these ideas through explorations of data and land ownership, the relationship between labour and resources, the spaces of activism and how we define our public space. Through a series of events, screenings and workshops alongside the exhibition we hope to encourage active participation in the debates.
The exhibition is organised by Hemera Collective, a UK-based curatorial collective that specialises in photography and lens-based media, as part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2016.
