An exhibition presented by the National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA), COFA, UNSW in association with the Danish Arts Agency and City of Sydney, Curating Cities: Sydney-Copenhagen launches a 5-year research project, founded in the idea of deploying art and design to curate (literally ‘care for’) the city. It focuses on the use of creative strategies to meet the challenges of creating eco-sustainable urban environments.
Five influential projects evoke the city as part of an ecology affected by human action. Each develops new ways of visualising the environmental impact of human activity or of promoting practical strategies for change. Curated by Jill Bennett, Margaret Farmer, Felicity Fenner, Rachael Kiang.
A Curating Cities:Sydney-Copenhagen conference will be held in conjunction with this exhibition on the 22 Nov at Customs House. Visit the NIEA Events page for conference details and registration or www.curatingcities.org.
