Event description

Description

Mel Evans: Artwash

In ‘Artwash: Big Oil and the Arts’, Mel Evans provides a gripping exposé  on the murky world of oil sponsorship of the arts, focusing on the deep-rooted relationship between our art institutions and the multi-national corporations that fund them. In the wake of massive environmental disasters created by the oil industry, companies such as BP and Shell are using arts sponsorship as a calculated PR exercise to ‘artwash’ their soiled reputations, raising important questions about artistic censorship and complicity, as art institutions find themselves inextricably associated with Big Oil.
