@ DIVERSEartLA – Networked art by networked curating
LA Art Show 2022 - DIVERSEartLA - curated by Marisa Caichiolo
https://www.laartshow.com/diverseartla/


DIVERSEartLA is back with a new ecological lens. Curated by Marisa Caichiolo, this year’s edition will examine not just how the environment is represented in art, but how humanity’s place in the world is depicted. This exhibition will open up an important dialogue about the Earth’s past, present, and future, uniting the community around discussions of the global climate crisis and potential solutions.

“One of the most powerful things about art is that it brings people together, and transforms the way we communicate. The goal of DIVERSEartLA 2022 is to view this sector of art within the show through ecological glasses.

This topic is at the heart of a growing number of art narratives, including exhibitions built with high-tech innovations, designed to inspire artistic appreciation and the desire to respond to environmental challenges – reinforcing the value of translating environmental advocacy into art.

Memory of The Future?
The concept of the program composition of art videos curated by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne is considering the architectural installation at Torrance Art Museum as a modular system and his curatorial contribution as one module among the others forming in its totality on one hand a curatorial artwork (among other artworks in the framework of the global artwork, the installation on its totality is representing), communicating with the other static, interactive or moving installation components.

When the viewer/visitor is sensually experiencing the installation, particularly the moving images modules, the 100 minutes running program “Memory of the Future?” is confronting the visitor with the memory of Unknown, Unexpected, the yet to come – as long as he/she is staying sensually experiencing the installation.

“Memory OF THE Future” is referring beyond that primarily to the Uncertainty of the Future of Planet EARTH and its inhabitants – the “Climate Change” they are causing. How do artists deal with the aspect of taking responsibility for each other by taking responsibility for planet Earth saving its integrity for future generations?

Abdoul-Ganiou Dermani (Togo) – Susanne Wiegner (Germany) – Kim Maree (New Zealand) –
Susanne Layla Petersen (Denmark) – Jean-Michel Rolland (France) – originating from different continents and cultural backgrounds & experiences approach the aspect of transferring the memory of the already existing to the not yet existing differently. The 15 selected video works, commu-nicating with each other and the other art modules they are embedded in are sharing the memory of ideas and ideals, juxtaposing also the incompatibility of economic and ecological interests.

The curatorial contribution would like to support the architectural installation by encouraging, activating and motivating the visitor/viewer to become part of the artistic concept.
