"Creativity and the power to Act" Ai Wei Wei
The artist will contribute to a conversation at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion about expanding ideas, work and actions relating to cultures of resilience. This project, named the Culture of Resilience Project, is a two year UAL-wide initiative, the goal of which is to build a “multiple vision” on the cultural side of resilience by putting together a set of narratives, values and ideas that are coherent in that they are all based on resilient systems, but in many other aspects they are very diverse. A multiplicity of images that, like the stones of a mosaic, may generate a larger one: a mobile, dynamic, colourful vision of a resilient, sustainable civilization. Whitney McVeigh will give a short talk on her recent film and forth coming installation (spring 2015) at St Peter's Church, Kettle's Yard Museum, Cambridge.
