Total Landscaping

10 April 2021 - 13 June 2021
10:00 - 20:00

Curated by Murtaza Vali, Total Landscaping investigates the ways in which plant life is commonly understood, encountered, represented and consumed in the Gulf, and within similar emergent urban formations across the global south. It focuses in on instances when the unruly vitality of flora is arrested in the service of capitalism and politics, a process that abstracts and reduces it to a color, a verb and an image.

You Are Here: An Adventure in Mapping Exploration and Observation

5 June 2021

This workshop aims to introduce students to the creative process of mapping. Artists, photographers, and designers have long appropriated maps as a means to document and make sense of experience and place. Traditional maps say ‘this is how the place is,’ but artists weave their narratives into subjective, personal, and equally valuable perceptions of place.
