Nature et planète : en parler, l’exposer, s’en inspirer

Nature et planète : en parler, l’exposer, s’en inspirer

Rencontres muséo Paris – « Les musées à l’heure de l’urgence environnementale »

Commissaires du cycle : Diane DrubayLaurence Perrillat et Julie Botte

Face à l’interdépendance des crises que nous vivons, qu’elles soient sociales, environnementales, climatiques et de la biodiversité, il devient crucial que les politiques et pratiques muséales aient un impact sur notre futur. L’ambition de ce programme de trois rencontres est de donner des clés de compréhension et d’activation de projets faisables et durables. Nous débuterons avec un état des lieux des différentes portes d’entrée de la transition écologique, puis nous pencherons sur le cas précis des expositions temporaires et comment l’économie circulaire nous permet d’alléger l’une des activités principales des musées, et enfin, comment la nature inspire les artistes tout autant que les professionnels des musées.

Nature et planète : en parler, l’exposer, s’en inspirer

29 juin 2021- 18h-20h – En ligne

Nous parlons de crise environnementale mais savons-nous parler de la nature et de la planète ? La connaissons-nous assez pour pouvoir imiter ses principes et comment régénérer au lieu de consommer ? Comment faire pour que les musées deviennent ces caisses de résonance des défis sociaux et environnementaux, incarnent des principes de la nature dans leurs pratiques, valorisent artistes engagés lanceurs d’alerte, offrent une plateforme de discussion et de débats pour inspirer le changement ?

Connaissez-vous le vrai coût d’une exposition temporaire ? Que ce soit à travers la scénographie, les transports d’œuvres et des équipes, les fournisseurs ou matériaux utilisés, appliquer une approche circulaire sur la production des expositions temporaires et itinérantes est crucial pour réduire l’impact environnemental des musées.

  • Alice Bonnot, commissaire d’expositions et fondatrice Villa Villa (Portugal);
  • Sylvie Bétard, co-fondatrice de la Réserve des Arts, de l’Upcyclerie et Les Augures (France).

Comment s’engager pour la planète ?

27 avril 20201 – 18h-20h – en ligne

Comment s’engager dans une démarche plus durable ? Comment lancer son musée dans une transition écologique aujourd’hui cruciale pour s’assurer un avenir meilleur ? Il existe plusieurs portes d’entrée, et elles sont toutes bonnes. Que la transformation passe par un changement au niveau individuel ou systémique, à travers un nouveau vocabulaire ou de nouvelles pratiques, à des fins régénératives, artistiques ou activistes, s’engager pour la planète c’est avant tout célébrer le changement.

About this Event

Join our panel of internationally-recognized cultural sector thought leaders as we explore the evolving role of community museums. As social and cultural agencies, museums can help foster healthier, more inclusive, sustainable and connected communities. Our panelists will give insight into how museums are working with their local communities to address some of the most important issues of our time as we look to emerge from a global health and economic crisis.

Each guest will introduce their topic before event participants break out into 30-minute long break-out rooms of their topic choice. Participants will then come back with recommendations or ideas of how the Canmore Museum can address these topics with it’s community over the next four years.

This On The Table event for the Canmore community and the Alberta cultural sector is being hosted in conjunction with the launch of the Canmore Museum Re-Imagined Strategy.

Climate Arts in the Pandemic

Climate Arts in the Pandemic

The Climate Museum of New York invites you for a film screening of: CLIMATE ARTS IN THE PANDEMIC: A CONVERSATION WITH GABRIELA SALAZAR AND UNA CHAUDHURI

Last March, the Climate Museum team was eagerly anticipating the presentation of a sculptural installation and one-day participatory performance in Washington Square Park by the remarkable artist Gabriela Salazar—a work entitled Low Relief for High Water—to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April 2020.

We now invite you to a program dedicated to this work in suspension—and in progress.

Art about the climate crisis has gathered freight in the time of COVID-19. Personal and community resilience are more important than ever, and climate arts can connect our distant existential concerns to our closest shared values. Climate arts build community based on truth.

Join us on Friday, March 26 from 1-2pm EST to explore these themes with the screening of a short film about Salazar’s work, followed by an interactive conversation moderated by Climate Museum director Miranda Massie. The discussion will include:

  • Gabriela Salazar, Artist
  • Una Chaudhuri, Climate arts expert; NYU Professor of English, Drama, and Environmental Studies; and Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities

  • Micah Fink, Filmmaker and Professor of Social Documentary at the School of Visual Arts

  • Anais Reyes, Exhibitions Associate at the Climate Museum

RSVP here.
