'Arts of the decolonial' seeks to detail how artistic and curatorial practice has informed the decolonial turn that so characterises contemporary scholarly thought and theorise how such practice may point to the decolonialities of tomorrow. While anthropological and art historical study has generally focused on how art is informed by, or otherwise illustrates, scholarly perspectives on decoloniality, this panel questions how artistic and/or curatorial practices might theorise or articulate diverse decolonialities to dynamically transform the canon. If we understand art as generative, how does the work of art practitioners of indigenous, diasporic and peripheral populations challenge Eurocentric paradigms of critical thought? How might, for example, such artistic practice disrupt notions of linear time? How might we conceptualise the reflexive curatorial practice of institutions that work from within a colonial matrix? What might be the sorts of languages that artists provide for thinking about the relation between objects and spectators, the commons and knowledge, theory and practice? How might such languages prefigure the decolonialities of tomorrow, and what might the theoretical basis upon which such contributions are enunciated? If indeed artistic and curatorial practice has played an important role in the facilitation of the decolonial zeitgeist, how might such practitioners be reshaping the very terrain upon which this edifice has been built in the present moment?
