Notes from the Field: Commoning Practices in Art and Science is a multi-faceted project that investigates the notion of art as a tool or tactic for action with communities, with a focus on projects involving science and technology or driven by ecological concerns.

Notes from the Field presents aspects of Arts Catalyst’s ongoing art and citizen science project Wrecked on the Intertidal Zone with lead artists YoHa, Critical Art Ensemble, Andy Freeman and Fran Gallardo, who are working with communities on the Thames estuary. Alongside this, it presents the Arte Útil archive, a project initiated by artist Tania Bruguera, which chronicles a history of art projects that create tactics to change how we act in society.

Resident researchers are proposing projects for inclusion in the Arte Útil archive. We invite visitors to read the archive’s guidelines and propose projects to be considered by the Arte Útil panel.

Projects on display at the Centre include; Women on Waves, who provide abortions in international waters by boat; the Transborder Immigrant Tool, which enables safer crossing on the Mexico-US border; Green Guerrillas, initiated by Liz Christy in the 70s to reclaim debris-filled vacant lots in NYC.
