When it comes to ways in which artists address ecological issues, actions can be big or small – it’s the action that is important however subtle.

In the face of complex environmental problems the Bruised: Art Action and Ecology in Asia exhibition at RMIT Gallery (12 April – 1 June), curated by Helen Rayment and Thao Nguyen, examines how artistic response combined with gentle activism can result in a rich legacy and empower further actions in the community

As part of the exhibition, Bruised Food: a living laboratory, curated by Marnie Badham and Francis Maravillas, brings together a lively program of art and events in a working kitchen within the gallery,to explore the politics and aesthetics of food as employed by contemporary social practice artists.

Join us at RMIT Gallery for curators’ talk, and delve deeper into the themes and ecological ideas in the exhibition, which examines how artists are using creative actions to open discussions around food sustainability and production, environmental catastrophes and human migration in our region.

Speakers: Helen Rayment, Thao Nguyen; Marnie Bandham & Francis Maravillas.
