London LASER 28 Wednesday 27 February 2019 6.30 - 9.00pm (registration from 6.15pm)    Remote Residencies: Moving Methods and Mindsets  London LASER presents an evening of talks on art and science interactions in remote locations.  Interdisciplinary collaboration enables artists to explore distant locations. Such visits present opportunities to create work in response to unique places both in situ and back at home. However, such residencies also pose questions about how different disciplinary methods and mindsets operate together. It also requires consideration of the interaction with local communities and populations (human and nonhuman), and ideas of legacy (what is left behind). This event brings together a range of curators and artists who have worked in remote locations, to share their experiences both individually and in conversation.   Speakers include curator Lilian Fraiji (LABverde art/nature/science residency in the Amazon rainforest), and artist and researcher Neal White (Office of Experiments).  Lilian Fraiji is an art curator and producer based in the Amazon, Brazil. She is specialist in Cultural Management from Barcelona University and has a master’s degree in Curating Arts from the University of Ramon Llull, Barcelona. She is the co-founder of Manifesta, an organization dedicated to develop multidisciplinary contents involving art, science and nature. As an independent researcher she is interesting in how culture is related to nature and how landscape is shaped in the Anthropocene era. She was the chief curator of the Amazon Pinacoteca (2008-2013) and has curated several art exhibitions involving the subject of the Amazon, including “Amazon Liquid” (L’Galerie-Manaus-2015), “Amazon: Invisible Landscape” (Stad4 Gallery – NYC – 2018) and “Latitudes”(INPA-Manaus-2018). Currently she is the coordinator of LABVERDE:  Art Immersion Program in the Amazon and is responsible for program’s social contribution at Bosque da Ciência/Inpa in Manaus. LABVERDE was created to strengthen the limits of art through a broad array of experiences, knowledge sets and cultural perspectives involving art, science and nature. The program’s main goal is to promote artistic creation through a constructive debate about environmental issues generated by both theory and life experiences in the Amazon rainforest. Developed in association with Manifesta Art and Culture and The National Institute for Amazonian Research, LABVERDE promotes an intensive experience in the rainforest mediated by a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified specialists in art, humanity, biology, ecology and natural science. As an artist, Neal White's interests cover science, technology and post-conceptual practice. He has frequently undertaken collaborations with artist Tina O'Connell (IE), as well as Office of Experiments (2004). In the UK, exhibitions and projects include; Royal College of Art, Whitechapel Gallery, Henry Moore Institute, Natural History Museum, Chelsea Space and Arts Catalyst. International exhibitions and residencies include: Apexart, New York, Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp, Portikus (Frankfurt), Center for Land Use Interpretation (Utah). As an academic he has contributed to discourse on Experimental Systems/Artistic Research, Overt Research Methods, Artist Archives, with a recent paper on the 'The Potential of Destruction in Art and Science'. He has worked closely with Arts Catalyst, London, since 2001 and was co-founder of Soda (1997-02). He currently helps coordinate the Incidental Unit (formerly Artist Placement Group) and is Professor of Art / Science, and Co-Director of CREAM at University of Westminster. The event is free but booking is required.    Stay up to date on Twitter, Facebook and at Contact us at [email protected]
