(Eco)logical Sense Exhibition

12 - 15 March 2020
Stevenson Building, Kensington Gore, South Kensington, London, SW7 2EU
What does sustainability mean today? How can art practices respond to this ungraspable term? Sustain Lab at the Royal College of Art selected works that critique current attitudes to materials, modes of production and the fundamental relationship that humans have with the natural environment. Here, sustainability points to time, from the lost landscape of Doggerland to the technological fashions of the future. Works demonstrate the need to acknowledge that production is the start of a chain that involves an afterlife, leading us to re-think our attitudes to materials and waste. Whilst grounded within walls of the Hockney gallery, the exhibition provides a space to question the institution in which it sits and asks how the university itself is responding to the issue.
Artists: Betty Brunfaut, Ed Carr, Liz K Miller, Eva Lili Bartha, Effy Harle, Harriet Katie Hellman, Magda Tritto, Marina Belintani, Peter Green, Shir Raz, Sylwia Orynek, Woo Jin.
This event is part of Green Week 2020, co-curated by Charlotte dos Santos and Tere Chad of Sustain Lab.
