In the first Live from Jupiter Nicky wilson, Director of Jupiter Artland hosts an in-conversation with Alberta Whittle and Annalee Davis. Filmed in 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic the conversation provides a moment to survey art, change and experience over the past year.
The In-Conversation is followed by an informal discussion between Nicky, Alberta and Annalee. The Live was streamed to coincide with Alberta Whittle’s exhibition RESET at Jupiter.
Part of RESET & RISE: a summer season of residencies, broadcasts and artist-led projects at Jupiter Artland. The triple-crises of 2021 – the climate emergency, the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter Movement for social justice – have created a new learning landscape for artists and citizens alike. In this future, we are offered a choice to carry with us the burden of unsustainable practices, or to break with the past, and to imagine our world anew. This summer, the landscape of Jupiter will host a season of exhibitions, artist-led projects, residencies, broadcasts and international collaborations arranged around the theme of ‘reset and rise’ – rethinking our relationship to the land, ecology, social justice and mapping out possibilities for the future. This Reading Room introduces you to artists and artist-led initiatives leading the programme, which will culminate in November 2021 to coincide with Scotland’s hosting of the COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow.
RESET was part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2021. RESET was co-commissioned and co-produced by Frieze and Forma.
