Outside the Silos: Art Practices as Environmental Justice
This session is held in the Art Gallery of Ontario, Gallery School (Room 020)
Led by Honor Ford-Smith, Andil Gosine and Lisa Myers
Full-time faculty members in Cultural and Artistic Practices at the Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University, Ford-Smith, Gosine and Myers are also practicing artists in visual arts and performance. They have individually produced various scholarly and creative works, and have exhibited at galleries and museums internationally.
Three practicing artists working in the academy but outside fine arts departments and art schools share their experiences and create a roundtable conversation about the advantages, challenges and ambivalences of working in, across and, especially, outside institutional silos.
