"Curating Cities" Gets a Royal Launch

Added by | 10 yearss ago


Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark attended the official opening of the "Curating Cities" project, led by UNSW, in Sydney on Sunday. "Curating Cities" is an Australian Research Council ARC funded Linkage project led by Professors Jill Bennett and Richard Goodwin, and Chief Curator Felicity Fenner of the National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA) at the University of New South Wales' College of Fine Arts. It is a 5-year research project that examines how the arts can generate environmentally beneficial behaviour change and influence the development of green infrastructure in urban environments. Founded on the principle of using art and design to curate--literally, to care for--public space, the project places creative disciplines at the heart of the sustainability agenda. In doing so it advances an ambitious research plan for aesthetic practice, proposing 'curating' as a method for working through the practical concerns of sustainable living. Sunday's official launch was the culmination of several sustainable art and design events, curated by the National Institute of Experimental Arts, which have been running in Sydney over the past two months.
