Keynote Lecture: William L. Fox: The Art Of The Anthropocene

This event took place at The University of Melbourne
6 May 2015 as part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE

Speakers: William L. Fox, Director, Centre For Art + Environment, Nevada

This program was produced and created by festival Director Bronwyn Johnson and Guy Abrahams for CLIMARTE’s ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015 festival.

Nevada Museum of Art asks us to imagine art, not just for art’s sake, but art that walks in the world; recording and archiving the human experience for present and future generations to learn and grow from. The Anthropocene is an informal geologic chronological term that serves to mark the evidence and extent of human activities that have had a significant global impact on the Earth’s ecosystems. Fox believes that without a record or archive of such art, we lose knowledge from generation to generation, which threatens a culture’s sustainability.
