Reconstructing Resilience was an exhibition that brought together a range of works that compel us to reimagine what it means to be creatively resilient and sustainable within contemporary society. Resilience, here, referred to a community’s ability to creatively adjust and sustain itself in light of rapid and occasionally negative change, while sustainability permeated multiple arenas, including economics, ecology, politics and culture.
The works exhibited all examined intersections of these spheres. They questioned the meaning and possibilities surrounding sustainable resilience. Is it possible to construct initiatives that truly bridge all four areas of sustainability? What do these initiatives look like? How is it possible to ensure success, given the diverse intersection of dimensions? And how do we measure this success?
