Curating ecological practices
Lecture by Lucia Pietroiusti as part of GLC lecture series Ruptured Landscapes curated by Aristide Antonas.
Curator Lucia Pietroiusti will discuss some methodologies and curatorial strategies related to recent projects, including General Ecology and Back to Earth at Serpentine, as well as Sun & Sea (Lithuanian Pavilion at the 2019 Venice Biennale, and touring), attempting to answer complex questions around the role culture can play in the environmental emergency; and what "ecological practices" might be in this context.
