Wild New Territories
portraits of the Urban and the Wild london, Vancouver, Berlin
Edited by Ron den Daas and Kathy Kenny
This groundbreaking exhibition occupied galleries as well as outdoor spaces in restored or protected wildlands in London, Vancouver and Berlin, and was produced in partnership with both art galleries and environmental and natural history organisations. Ultimately linking cultural and environmental ecologies, Wild New Territories presented themes that reflect the complex interconnectedness of all things, highlighting issues surrounding an uncertain environment and the potential collapse of ecosystems within historically charged urban contexts.
By locating contemporary art in some of the world's most creative urban habitat initiatives, this multi-platform event entered 'wild new territories', both physically and metaphorically, generating new ideas in understanding an evolving urban and wild dynamic. The book reflects upon the exhibition and extends its themes through a series of essays, talks, featured projects and related documentation.
