In recent years, the climate crisis has grown impossible for society to ignore.

About this Event

Artists have often led the way in examining humanity’s relationship to our environment; this panel will look at how modern and contemporary artists in Britain have contributed to this tradition – from modernist rural landscapes to land art, to contemporary ecological art – and the questions their work has raised. What are the politics underlying the approaches of different works? How can changing contexts of display alter their meanings? And might these forms of art also be considered a type of research or activism?

With Rosemary Shirley, Director of Parafin Gallery Ben Tufnell and artist Rachel Pimm. Chaired by Gabrielle Schwarz, Web Editor at Apollo.
