Zoom and Livestream
How does art need to conceive of itself to be an agent of environmental justice? In this online talk, filmmaker and activist Ashish Ghadiali and curator Lucia Pietroiusti discuss their collaborative practice, including the recent Scorching Suns, Rising Seas and Equilibrium programmes (June-July 2019, London). By focusing on artworks, methodologies and conceptual frameworks, the talk will outline the principles behind Radical Ecology, a new, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting climate justice through creative practice.
Ashish Ghadiali is a filmmaker and activist who works for racial justice and environmental justice in diverse contexts. He is Strategic Advisor on Climate Justice at the University of Exeter’s Global Systems Institute and co-chair of the Black Atlantic Innovation Network at UCL’s Sarah Parker Remond Centre for the Study of Racism and Racialisation.
Lucia Pietroiusti is a curator working at the intersection of art, ecology and systems, usually outside of the gallery format. Pietroiusti is the founder of the General Ecology project at Serpentine Galleries, London, where she is currently Strategic Advisor for Ecology.
