When: Wednesday, July 12, 2023, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PMWhere: The Garden Museum
This talk is part of the IHSS Environmental Future research programme and the Garden Museum's new Branch Out programme, a series of free events and activities exploring gardening, art, floristry, plant science, history, design, and more!
Join sociologist Dr Giulia Carabelli and artist-researcher Matthew Beach, co-curators of our current community wall display entitled Cabinet Cultures: Cultivating Aesthetic, Ecological, and Heritage Value in Human-Houseplant Relations, for afternoon storying the duo’s collaboration with one another and tropical/subtropical plants.
You will learn more about vegetal geographies and critical plant studies, how human-houseplant kinship can sprout through research, and the importance of cross-industry partnership and collaboration in impacting how humans value houseplants.
Our Branch Out programme has been made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
