How can art conceive of itself as an agent of environmental justice? In this talk, film-maker and activist Ashish Ghadiali and curator Lucia Pietroiusti will discuss their collaborative practice, which started with the development (with Amal Khalaf) of ‘Sensing the Planet’ (Dartington Trust /Serpentine Galleries, 2021) as a decolonial, alternative gathering, and continued until COP26 (Glasgow, 2021). By focusing on artworks, methodologies and conceptual frameworks, the talk will outline the principles behind Radical Ecology, a new, non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting climate justice through creative practice.
Ashish Ghadiali and Lucia Pietroiusti are in Portugal in the framework of the Maumaus International Residency Programme. In addition to the lecture, Lucia Pietroiusti is conducting research on Portuguese contemporary artistic creation, which is part of the International Residency Programme and that has already included the participation of curators Sabine Breitwieser, Roger M. Buergel, Corinne Diserens, Nuria Enguita Mayo, Elvira Dyangani Ose, Mats Stjernstedt, and Milan Ther, among others.
Ashish Ghadiali is a founding partner (with Lucia Pietroiusti) of Radical Ecology, a strategic consultant on climate justice for the Global Systems Institute (University of Exeter), as well as co-chair of the Black Atlantic Innovation Network at UCL’s Sarah Parker Remond Centre for the Study of Racism and Racialisation in London.
Lucia Pietroiusti is a curator working at the intersection of art, ecology and systems, usually outside of the gallery format. She is the founder of the ‘General Ecology’ project at Serpentine Galleries, London, and is developing Radical Ecology (with Ashish Ghadiali). Current projects include ‘Being Mothers’ (E-Werk Luckenwalde, Germany) and ‘Persons’, with Filipa Ramos (8th Biennale Gherdeïna, Italy).
