Extracting Us collective, University of Brighton, UK Launch event 20.01.22 | 12:00-13:30 GMT
The ‘Despite Extractivism’ online exhibition assembles expressions of care, creativity and community from diverse sites of extraction and geographical contexts. Collectively, the works in this exhibition illuminate and explore ways of questioning, subverting and resisting the logics and impacts of extractivism. Can artistic interventions help foster new sensibilities and solidarities with distanced extractive contexts? Can sites of extraction be a fertile ground for alternatives?
The exhibition is part of the ongoing ‘Extracting Us’ collective journey exploring the diverse, uneven but sometimes connected ways in which resource extraction also extracts from communities. The exhibition and associated events include contributions by artist Luce Choules (showing as Choules+Roisner) and associate V’cenza Cirefice (with project participants).
