“If the Anthropocene is how we label our current geologic epoch, then its cultural corollary is the Anthroposcenic, an era in which our understanding of nature and culture are re-integrated.” —William L Fox, director of the Center for Art + Environment, Reno, Nevada
Before his address at NGV International this evening, William L Fox takes a seat at MPavilion and chats with Guy Abrahams (co-founder and CEO of CLIMARTE) in a lunchtime discussion about how art and nature are merging in this Anthroposcenic age. Is it good for art? Is it good for Earth? Can art help us through the environmental challenges we face—and have, in an extraordinarily large part, created? And should it? Join us, and join in the conversation, as William and Guy explore creative human interventions on the environment—and question if we can, or should, harness art’s power for our own benefit.
Presented by CLIMARTE in association with the Hugh Williamson Foundation, the John Truscott Design Foundation, MPavilion and the NGV.
