Art of Environmental Justice in an Expanded Field: A Symposium on Creative Activism and Eco-Politics across Boundaries

 

This one-day event brings together leading international contemporary artists who engage problems of environmental justice in expansive ways. The purpose: to highlight the critical power of visual art to reimagine the politics of ecology across various boundaries—not just national borders but also socioeconomic classes, identities, disciplines, species, and media. Speakers will discuss creative projects that demonstrate the far-reaching capacity of visual art to interpret urgent ecological issues and problems of environmental inequality for a broad public. Participants will also consider the aesthetic and practical implications of environmental justice for expanding art itself. The format: nine 30-minute artist presentations, organized in three sessions with faculty moderators and audience Q&A. Lunch available and reception following.

Participating artists:
