Art Not Oil

Critical Citizenship, Activism and Art

11 Feb 2015

6.30pm - 8.30pm

Free, The Space

A conversation about how artists and cultural institutions engage in issues related to oil, is presented in collaboration with the Politicised Practice Research Group and Anarchist Research Group, Loughborough University. This conversation, with invited guests Liberate Tate, forms part of Critical Citizenship, Activism and Art, a series of seminars and events to showcase and critically discuss art activists' efforts to give a voice to the excluded, promote inclusive alternatives, and enrich global culture and citizenship. 

Liberate Tate is an art collective exploring the role of creative intervention in social change and has become internationally renowned for artworks about the relationship of public, cultural institutions with oil companies. The group will present documentation from their five years of performance-interventions, alongside a discussion of their methodology and how cultural institutions play an important role in the normalisation of the environmental and human rights abuses of oil companies.
