Lead Artist: Myco-Lective with Feral Practice & Chisenhale Studios
Myco-Lective takes its inspiration from human & nonhuman models of
education and mutual aid, especially the mycorrhizal networks of the forest, where established trees share nourishment with shaded neighbours via under-soil webs of fungal mycelium. Working with 6 artists selected through an open call, the curator & lead artist will lead the development of new ideas & skills, while actively nurturing the
increasing autonomy & collectivity of participants over a 12 month period.
May 2020-2021, London
Three interlinked artist residencies led by Linden Katherine McMahon, Hari Byles and Ama Josephine Budge at Bethnal Green Nature Reserve will explore queer ecologies.

May - September, The Nature Reserve, Bethnal Green
