The Collection is based on special commissions mainly of moving image art and recent acquisitions of works on environmental awareness. PCAI provides mid-career and emerging artists with the means and resources to create an artwork inspired by urgent environmental issues in their broader relation to current sociocultural, economic, philosophical concerns. The Collection invites artists to reflect on the concept of waste and related processes in a free and innovative way; to create art that challenges the limits of previous views and representations; to imagine new forms and use radical tactics while addressing our changing world.
The Projects are all the activities and events (special commissions, exhibitions, publications, affiliations, screening events, talks, conferences, educational programs and workshops) organized by PCAI within the organization’s foundational aim. Such activities and events develop beyond the Collection, yet are often in dialogue with issues raised by its material.
