A Museum for Future Fossils + Broad Topics

Department of Visual Arts & ArtLab Gallery at Western University / London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA)

Join us Friday, June 7 at the John Labatt Visual Arts Centre for:
An artist talk by Abedar Kamgari from 3-4pm
A Museum for Future Fossils’ Open House from 4-6pm
And a series of screenings presented by LOMAA

A Museum for Future Fossils is a series of events and projects, including exhibitions, a workshop, and a graduate summer school, bringing together a key group of people working on museums, contemporary art, the Anthropocene, and climate change. Since June 1, graduate students participating in the MFFF project have been using the Artlab as a laboratory and meeting place. This exhibition is a living archive of the discussions and learning taking place as they consider the transnational implications of ecological crises – and art worlds – that cross borders and Indigenous lands and waters.
