Catalyst Walks is Catalyst Arts’ peripatetic programme that lets you enjoy art while getting out in the open air and feeling good about life. For this iteration artist Chloe Cooper will be riffing off the themes in our current exhibition As the Story was Told. The walk considers the narcissism of confessional narratives, the politics of sexuality, and the skulduggery/pragmatism of people taking on other people’s politics for their own benefit/the benefit of many. It’s basically an embodied exploration of appropriation, assimilation, and arseholes.
