Art Hx 2022 Symposium: curative / spaces

Andrea Chung, artist; Mabel O. Wilson, Columbia University

Thu, 4/28Fri, 4/29 · Zoom

Humanities Council Exploratory Grant in Collaborative Humanities

As the culmination of a yearlong programming series, Art Hx: Visual and Medical Legacies of British Colonialism presents our 2022 symposium: curative / spaces.

Bringing together artists, curators, writers, organizers, and academics, curative / spaces offers a forum for the exploration of the relationships between race, space, and healthcare through the lens of art and design. Panelists will consider the many implications of these intersections while also reflecting upon their implications for communities’ access to resources, meanings about the body, and our understandings and conceptions of healthcare.

curative / spaces is organized as a call for the imaginative redesign of processes of health injustice and the building of new practices of care together through art’s ability to transform society.
