Paul Mellon Centre | Finding Common Ground
July 8 @ 3:00 am - 12:30 pm
Friday, 8 July 2022, 9am – 6.30pm BST
Tate Liverpool and Online
A symposium convened by Sria Chatterjee (Head of Research and Learning, Paul Mellon Centre), Darren Pih (Curator, Exhibitions and Displays, Tate Liverpool) and Emilia Will (Project Editor, Tate Liverpool).
Imagined as an extension of the Radical Landscapes exhibition, Day 1 of the symposium provides a space to dig deeper into the histories and futures of the rural. The exhibition opens up the countryside as a space where questions around trespass, borders, access, edgelands, botany, artistic experimentation and struggles around civic freedoms coagulate. Following a private view of the exhibition for all attendees, the symposium will bring together scholars, artists and botanical practitioners to think together about contested spaces and collective action through talks, discussions and live performances.
