MAPS OF GRATITUDE, CONES OF SILENCE AND LUMPS OF COAL (2019)
Monash University Museum of Art
9 February - 13 April 2019
This diagram maps the connections between the fossil fuels industry and the arts in Australia. It accounts for all sectors of the fossil fuels industry, including operations, logistics and infrastructure, legal and administrative arms, major consumers, retailers, supporters and advocates of the fossil fuels industry. We have focussed on a selection of major arts institutions, tracing their connections to the fossil fuels industry through their partners, sponsors, board members and trustees. The research we have conducted is current as of December 2018 and accurate to the best of our knowledge and as far as information that is publicly available can tell us. Please get in touch with corrections or comments.
