Whose Power? Energy Change in the Home
25 January 2024 - 24 March 2024
Venue Leeds City Museum
The award-winning Preservative Party, a diverse group of 14 to 24 year old volunteer youth curators, have worked with Abigail Harrison Moore, Professor of Art History and Museum Studies in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, University of Leeds, to research those who have been overlooked in the histories of energy change.
Building on the Preservative Party’s work to explore the overlooked histories of objects in our collections, we have asked why it is important to understand how energy transformations were effected and often led by women in their homes? What can we learn from historic, social and gendered drivers for change at a moment when we all need to transition to a post-carbon energy supply?
