This event is part of the three-part Friday evening series, Artists Within the Anthropocene. Presented in partnership with the Belkin Art Gallery.
Participating artists from the 2022/23 PWIAS artist residency will share from collective learnings gathered in their attempt to face the climate and nature emergency from a place of intellectual, affective and relational rigour and response-ability.
Deploying artistic practices to confront our complicity with the extractive logics of coloniality, their inquiries address the challenges of decentering and disinvesting from human exceptionalism and the difficult ethical and practical complexities of staying with the trouble of repairing relations. This participatory lecture will include invitations to practices that open up possibilities for thinking, relating, and being beyond what is authorized within modern knowledge systems.
