IMA Podcast: Art and Architecture in the Pyrocene

Art and Architecture in the Pyrocene

Panel Discussion

20 March 2021

This panel discussion addressed the emergence of what fire historian Stephen Pyne calls the Pyrocene—the fire equivalent of an ice age—and how Queensland architecture and design face a critical moment of reflection.

Chaired by Susan Best, panellists include On Fire: Climate and Crisis curator Tim Riley Walsh, On Fire publication contributor and academic Chani Larsson, and art historian Andrew McNamara.
