Futures: Mapping the Terrain of Creative Inquiry

Presented by ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

This exhibition presents ongoing research from the Australian National University School of Art & Design, spanning climate change, digital heritage, maternal health, and the emerging arts of metabolism and digestion.

Working increasingly in collaboration, across disciplines, and with institutional and community partners, the School’s researchers show how knowledge-making in art and design reaches out to engage with the critical concepts and practical potentials of a shared future.
