Simon Stephens meets Ken Paranada, the curator of art and climate change at the Sainsbury Centre

Simon Stephens, the head of publications and events at the Museums Association, meets Ken Paranada, the curator of art and climate change at the Sainsbury Centre.

Ken, who is also a researcher and writer, was born in the Philippines and is now based in the UK. Before joining the Sainsbury Centre, Ken held curatorial positions with the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Cultural Centre of the Philippines, London Design Biennale, Shanghai Biennale, and many other globally renowned institutions.

Ken tells Simon about creating exhibitions, using museums to enact social change, the idea of living art, decolonisation, the changing role of the curator and how art can help communities respond and adapt to the climate crisis.
