DUMP! Multispecies Art-Science Exhibition at Kunsthal Aarhus (2015)

DUMP! Making and Unmaking

From June 26 - September 20, 2015, AURA co-hosted with Kunsthal Aarhus the innovative and multi-sensory art exhibition DUMP! Multispecies Making and Unmaking at Aarhus Kunsthal. The exhibition gathered artists, scientists and organisms to prope the practices of multispecies collaboration that emerge in the ruins of modernity and industrialized progress.

The exhibition opened June 26 and more than 24 international artists collaborated on the exhibition that was curated by post.doc and Art director of AURA Elaine Gan.

The exhibition was widely attended and received rave reviews from kunsten.nu and Aarhus Stiftstidende. The latter, for instance, applauded the exhibition as ”the most well prepared and very best in the last couple of years “

The exhibition was followed by a DUMP! workshop from September 5-6, 2015. Read more about it here
