Angela Chan is a ‘creative climate change communicator’ working across curation, art practice and research. She holds an MA in Climate Change: History, Culture, Society (KCL), and researches across decolonial climate justice, geography, feminist sciences and contemporary sinophone speculative fiction. Angela independently runs the curatorial project Worm: art + ecology (wormworm.org), and collaborates widely with artists, activists, speculative fiction authors and youth groups. She co-founded the London Chinese Science Fiction Group and her writing is published in Science Fiction (2020, Whitechapel Gallery & MIT Press).
Recent projects include an Arts Council England DYCP research project on climate visual cultures in East Asia (2019), an extensive exhibition project Climate Knowledges at MAMA in Rotterdam (2020), and youth group projects, which centre climate change’s colonial history, youth climate and racial justice activism, and inclusive speculative worldbuilding (South London Gallery, summer 2019 and Wellcome Collection, present). Angela is currently part of Obsidian Coast’s Hypericum Working Group and Chisenhale Gallery’s Myco-Lective artist development programme, working with video, remote sensing and climate storytelling.
