Join British Pavilion Platinum Partner Therme Art for a special edition of its Wellbeing Culture Forum, exploring the social components of Boyce’s artistic process and installation.
To mark the opening of Sonia Boyce’s installation Feeling Her Way, Therme Art hosted an iteration of its Wellbeing Culture Forum in partnership with the British Council, with essential contribution from the Serpentine.
The talk, titled The Impact of Social Practice, explored the social components of Boyce’s artistic process and installation, through the practice of other artists who involve community in their work. Socially engaged practice, also referred to as social practice, uses the synergies between people, communities and environments as catalysts to spur conversation, collaboration and social change.
In conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Emma Ridgway, Precious Okomoyon, Monilola Ilupeju and Sonia Boyce, the talk opened up a space to meditate on the reverberations of social practice within the art context and beyond, stressing the importance of mutability and collaboration as we resist an increasingly fractured world.
