Exchanging Cultures of Equality, Kingsway Corridor, Goldsmiths University of London, 2018
An exhibition curated to mark the launch of the major UKRI-funded transnational research project, Global Gender and Cultures of Equality (GlobalGRACE). The exhibition explored modes of exchange between collaborators from six countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, South Africa, and the UK, with project partners in each country comprising locally-based academics, artists, NGO staff and research participants. In each case, teams deployed arts-based practices and multi-sensory research to investigate the production of cultures of equality and enable gender positive approaches to well-being internationally. The exhibition was thematically focused on Postcards, Objects in Use and Crossed Wires.

A temporary ‘pop-up’ installation – organised in conjunction with the 2017 American Anthropological Association meetings and hosted by The Potter’s House – brought together academics, activists, and local community members to explore the materiality of protest, particularly in the context of actions responding to the 2016 election and subsequent presidency of Donald Trump.
Over three days, visitors submitted items and memories, and shared their reflections on the dynamic relationships that exists between art and activism, affect and object, creativity and community in the context of social justice action. Moving beyond AAA2017, a Virtual Museum, documents submissions from people all over the world.
The event was sponsored by the Society for Anthropology of North America, the Washington Association of Professional Anthropologists, and Georgetown University Department of Anthropology, with programming support from the AAA Annual Meetings Executive Committee.
