Vanessa talks to Beth about DATEAGLE ART’s recent projects and discusses the everyday considerations that curators and gallerists go through to reach sustainable goals. Revealing how exhibition-making is not a simple path from artist to viewer, instead of being a constant mediation of multiple webs, Vanessa considers the path to achieving sustainability through curation.
