How can artists flag the importance of political action on climate change?
Leone Contini, Emma Critchley, Holly Hendry (Slade), John Gerrard and Onya McCausland (Slade) will discuss the power of art to draw attention to environmental degradation and ask how its production can be both sustainable and engage with wider sustainability initiatives, in relation to communities and place. One vital question will be whether it is the proper role indeed responsibility of the artist to draw attention to the importance of political action on climate change and do policy-makers listen?
Organised by Susan Collins (UCL), Harriet O’Neill (BSR; RHUL) and Marta Pellerini (BSR).
Online via Zoom on Friday 16 July 2021, 15:00 - 18:00 BST.
