Fragile Nature Study Day

Thursday 18 July 2019

10am-5pm • £29.50, £25 concessions (includes lunch)

“Our task is to remind people of the richness and complexity in nature; to protect nature as far as we can and by doing so art will enter new territories that are inherently creative, that are primarily for the good of the universe.” Gustav Metzger, 2015.

What can art do in the face of escalating climate change? This day will bring together artists, curators and activists to explore ethical and creative questions around the ways that artistic practice has and can respond to environmental issues, with examples from contemporary artists Elspeth Owen and Lotte Scott to Gustav Metzger.
