UAL: DECOLONISING ARTS INSTITUTE X CONTEMPORARY ARTS SOCIETY
I contributed to the Contemporary Art Society’ paper on Doing the Work, Embedding anti-racism and decolonisation into museum practice. For this, CAS ran a series of seven, closed online workshops in 2021. This programme was co-produced by Anjalie Dalal-Clayton and Ilaria Puri Purini. I was commissioned to write an account of and critically reflect on what happened at the final workshop. It’s titled “Collective Care is Different from Self Care: Rethinking Engagement in Art Museums and Galleries in 2021.”
