Three Climate Presents … 2016

The AAANZ 2016 Annual Conference The Work of Art 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).

My paper:

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).
