Event description

Description

How can artists represent anthropogenic climate change? How might artwork - in galleries, public spaces, and digital venues - intervene in 'business as usual' and aid in the ongoing struggle to mitigate and adapt to this crisis? what role can art and creativity play in the consciousness shift that is urgently needed if the Earth is to remain a livable planet? This event features presentations on our speakers' different projects before addressing the above questions.

James Delano, a Japan-based photographer and storyteller who will be visiting Yale-NUS College, will discuss his popular Instagram feed, EverydayClimateChange. Ong Kian Peng, a Singaporean mixed media artist who was awarded the 2015 President's Young Talents Award, will discuss his recent installation at the Singapore Art Museum, "Too Near, Too Far." Matthew Schneider-Mayerson, Assistant Professor in Environmental Studies at Yale-NUS College, will draw lessons from his experience organizing a public climate art campaign, "Fossilized in Houston." Tom Iain White, freelance photographer and instructor of photography and visual communication, will moderate the event.

This event is brought to you by the Yale-NUS Environmental Studies Department, Arts and Humanities Department, Yale-NUS Photography Club, and Yale-NUS I'dECO.
