Art and Crisis
30 January 2020
In an era defined by human impact on the environment and overlapping crises, is art’s poetic and critical capacity to influence change—what Elaine Scarry describes as their status as “fragments of world alteration”—being challenged or affirmed? How do artists see their work in this new era?
In this panel artists Kinly Grey, Warraba Weatherall, Tintin Wulia, and host and exhibition curator Tim Riley Walsh engage with key themes of the exhibition On Fire: Climate and Crisis.
