Deeper: Toxicity’s Reach

Drawing from her curatorial research, Toxicity’s Reach curator Dani Admiss gave audiences a chemo-ethnographic tour of the show. Interweaving an online curators tour, stories from the exposure repository, and further research on the River Mersey, Admiss thinks about disruption, exposure and erasure at different scales. Dani was joined in conversation by artist Luiza Prado de. O Martins, whose work The Sea Collapsed Into the Pleasures of the Sand you can explore via the Toxicity’s Reach online exhibition.

This talk was part of Deeper, a series of in-depth conversations with artists presenting work elsewhere within the festival, offering a weekly moment to delve beyond the surface of the AND Festival 2021 programme. Tune in every Thursday, 7pm at andfestival.org.uk/live. Each talk will be available to listen to throughout the festival, until Sunday 11 July. And tune in every Sunday for our conversation series, Resurface.
