Episode 4: The Art World and Sustainability: Part I

In this episode the Earth Bodies collective will be discussing some of the reasons why we believe the art world, in its current state, isn’t environmentally sustainable. We will be covering topics from the materials we use, to the exhibitions we go to see, and much more. Resources we used and discussed in this episode are listed below for you.
