Worlding Public Cultures seeks to change discussions about our globally interconnected yet conflicted world through art, exhibitions, conferences and writing about art and its cultural, historical and socio-political realities. It seeks to tell new stories from multiple regional perspectives about our transnational and transcultural present, our shared and sometimes difficult past and to imagine new ways of living together in the future. The project draws upon the concept of “worlding,” which describes global history from multiple perspectives rather than narrating it from a single dominant standpoint. This bottom-up approach to global art history demonstrates the rich cultural and intellectual fabrics of global migrations and movements rather than focussing on the effects of top-down global capitalism, imperialism, and colonialism.
