London LASER Labs presents:
Remote Residencies: Moving Methods and Mindsets
27 February 2019
Interdisciplinary collaboration enables artists to explore distant locations. Such visits present opportunities to create work in response to unique places both in situ and back at home. However, such residencies also pose questions about how different disciplinary methods and mindsets operate together. It also requires consideration of the interaction with local communities and populations (human and nonhuman), and ideas of legacy (what is left behind).
This event brings together a range of curators and artists who have worked in remote locations, to share their experiences both individually and in conversation.
Speakers include curator Lilian Fraiji (LABverde art/nature/science residency in the Amazon rainforest), and artist and researcher Neal White (Office of Experiments).
LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) Talks is Leonardo's international program of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversations. LASER Talks were founded in 2008 by Bay Area LASER Chair Piero Scaruffi and are in over 30 cities around the world.
