Atomic Culture: Encoding a future setting with Atomic Culture
Join us on Zoom for the lecture.
Looking at our past projects and overarching curatorial practice. We will discuss our views on utilizing the various platforms with work within to deconstruct and reconstruct narratives. Curation as a tool to reimagine different outlooks and opportunities while nurturing and responding to the needs of the artists and communities we work within.
