Angela Chan is a ‘creative climate change communicator’, working as an independent curator, researcher and artist. She explores methods towards anti-colonial climate justice, through climate histories, geography and speculative fiction. Angela’s research seeks to reconfigure power, climate knowledges and minoritised experiences in relation to inequity and climate change.
Angela’s current commissions with FACT/Jerwood Arts, Estuary 2021 and Sonic Acts span climate framings, water scarcity and conflict. Her art projects include video work, participatory conversations and storytelling, and she collaborates widely with artists, activists, authors and youth groups. Angela produces exhibitions, talks, and workshops with her long-term curatorial project on climate issues, Worm: art + ecology.
She is interested in social and climate justice in science and speculative fiction, especially in translation. Angela co-founded the London Chinese Science Fiction Group and co-directs the London Science Fiction Research Community.
With Obsidian Coast’s Hypericum Working Group, Angela is co-writing a code of practice foregrounding marginalised cultural workers, and she is part of Chisenhale Studio’s Myco-Lective artist peer programme.
Angela holds a joint honours undergraduate in History of Art and Scandinavian Studies with Norwegian (UCL) and an MA in Climate Change: History, Culture, Society (KCL).
Angela Chan will be curating a short film programme as part of AND Festival 2021. Check back soon for the full programme on our website or sign up to the AND newsletter.
