Description

Future fossils: thinking about art’s material and structural complicity // Led by GIRLFORUM
// SAT 24 AUG 2019, 2-5PM
// FREE & OPEN TO ALL
// AT TURF, 46/47 TRINITY COURT (GROUND FLOOR), WHITGIFT SHOPPING CENTRE, CROYDON CR0 1UQ

GIRLFORUM hosts an afternoon of contributions and discussions considering the material complicity of the things we make as artists. In the face of an ever-deepening ecological crisis, should we pay closer attention to the materials and processes we use? As a growing environmentalism intersects with urgent restructuring around gender, race, class, and more, could we imagine a new, updated eco-feminism?

After a series of readings and contributions from artists and writers, there will be an open discussion in which everyone is invited to share ideas about how the ‘art world’ and art-making overlap with late capitalism. We will discuss how we can make space to slow things down and work with more care for each other, the environment, and ourselves. The session will end with a clothes swap – setting up a process of exchange that slows down and re-routes the cycles of fast fashion. Please bring your thoughts, feelings, and any clothes you’d like to swap!

With contributions from;
Rachel Pimm
Mariana Reyes
Skye Arundhati Thomas
