We will go more in detail about our practicalities and the best solutions when trying to reach post-fossil practice.

    The Mustarinda Association is a group of artists and researchers. At the centre of our activity lie contemporary art, boundary-crossing research, practical experimentation, communication, teaching and events. Mustarinda reaches towards a post-fossil culture by combining scientific knowledge and experiential artistic activity. Mustarinda house is located in the remote Kainuu region in Finland, next to old-growth spruce forests of Paljakka nature reserve. In 2020 Mustarinda celebrates its 10 years anniversary.

    Alma Heikkilä (b. 1984) lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. Heikkilä's painterly, sculptural and spatial works materialize merged agential aspects of humans, non-humans and infrastructures affected by the various dimensions of the global ecological crisis. She completed an MFA at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2009. Her work has been presented recently at Kiasma, Art Encounters Biennale, Casco, Tensta Konsthall, Gwanju Biennale, EKKM, Vilnius Painting Triennial, Norrköping Art Museum, EMMA Museum and Gallery AMA.

  5. Lumi Tan "Survival strategies"
    This lecture will reflect on the shifting role of small-scale non-profit organizations in the ecosystem of the contemporary art world, particularly in the market–driven context of New York City. The Kitchen, a non-profit presenting exhibitions and performance with equal regard since 1971, will be used as primary example to examine what constitutes support for artists in the current landscape through the lens of interdisciplinarity as well as look at the institution as a site of production. She will also discuss how feminist and anti-white supremacist approaches to curating can contribute to a more holistic vision of institutional support and push experimental approaches beyond the established statements of the 1970s avant-garde.

    Lumi Tan is Curator at The Kitchen in New York, where she organizes exhibitions and produces performances with artists across disciplines and generations. Most recently, Tanhas worked with Meriem Bennani, Half Straddle, Sara Magenheimer, and Sondra Perry. Previously she co-curated From Minimalism into Algorithm (2016), a year-long performance and exhibition series, as well as projects with artists including Ed Atkins, Gretchen Bender, Glasser, George Lewis, Anicka Yi, and Danh Vo and Xiu Xiu. Prior to The Kitchen, Tan was Guest Curator at the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Nord Pas-de-Calais in France, director at Zach Feuer Gallery, and curatorial assistant at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Artforum, Frieze, The Exhibitionist, and numerous exhibition catalogues.
