Ethnographic Terminalia is an initiative that brings artists and anthropologists together to engage in emerging research through exhibition. “Exhibition as Residency” is an interactive installation of several collaborative projects between artists and anthropologists where visitors are invited to explore what lies within and beyond disciplinary territories of art and anthropology. The performative dimension of this exhibition makes visible how collaborations can shape new communities and innovative representations of cultural practice.
The range of artistic and anthropological research on exhibit includes: emergent visual research methods for visualizing place, material culture and indigenous history, film, migration studies, contemporary art, natural/realist painting, fashion design, and curatorial methods.
