Art in the Anthropocene

Wednesday, January 23, 2019
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
National Gallery of Canada
380 Sussex Drive
Ottawa, ON K1N 9N4

Associate Curator Andrea Kunard will discuss the Anthropocene exhibition, exploring how art can offer diverse ways of understanding a rapidly changing world. She will address the exhibition’s capacity to reconfigure boundaries, while mixing visual art with science, literature, activism and theory. Most importantly, discussion will focus on how the exhibition positions the art museum as a place of community, one which capitalizes on the public space for the exchange and debate of ideas, all the while acknowledging the power of aesthetics to hold the viewer in a place of reflection.

In English.
