The AAANZ 2016 Annual Conference was held at the Australian National University, Canberra, 1–3 December.
I had the pleasure to co-convene this roundtable panel –
Affect, Capital, and Aesthetics: Critical Climate Change and Art History –
with Su Ballard (University of Wollongong) and Bridie Lonie (University of Otago, NZ). December 2, 2016.
Other roundtable presenters were: Tracey Clement (Sydney College of the Arts PhD candidate), Fernando do Campo (artist, curator), Dr Jo Law (UOW).
Three Climate Presents: Affect and becoming-inhuman in aesthetic atmospheres of rage-love, biocuriosity, and breath
discussed affect, aesthetics and climate change via a small ecology of contemporary artists: painter Maggi Hambling’s iceberg ‘Edge’ (2015); Olafur Eliasson and Minik Rosing’s ‘Ice Watch’ (2015); Perdita Phillip’s termite collaboration ‘Tender Leavings’ (2016); and Victoria Hunt’s vocal “Erasure’ (2016).
