Art Symposium & Exhibition

The premise for this Symposium and accompanying Exhibition was that cultivation is leading to new art practices deserving of critical inquiry and articulation. Whether in the garden or allotment, the soup kitchen or the road, on wasteland or the tower block, or wherever there are cracks in the system, cultivation provokes questions about human being’s relation to and encounter with the earth and its growth systems and operations. The purpose of this Symposium and Exhibition was to encourage discursive exchange and productive encounter between art practitioners and researchers within the cultivation field.
