The discourse of ecology and sustainability has gained critical traction in recent years. But how are these concepts framed within the space, language and idea of the exhibition? This panel discussion, moderated by Steven Lam and conducted by email in July 2012, sought to unpack the claims and limits of the ecological, looking specifically at various international case studies, within the practice of curatorial and exhibition studies. The discussion begins with a reflection on ‘DON'T/PANIC’ in Durban and ‘Rethink – Contemporary Art and Climate Change’ in Copenhagen, exhibitions that were organized in conjunction with the climate summits, and provides examples of various anti-oil sponsorship actions and interventions by artists and activists. Panellists include curators Gabi Ngcobo, Jack Persekian, Anne Sophie Witzke, Nato Thompson and the artist collective Liberate Tate.
