Visions of an Unsettled Earth: An Open Discussion
Visions of an Unsettled Earth is an exhibition that explores ideas of temporality, transience and transformation in an ever evolving environment. Now in its third iteration it features new and recent works by visual artists Debbie Godsell, Fiona Kelly and Sarah O’Flaherty.
Join us on Friday, July 14th at 12-1-2pm for an in conversation with the Artists and the Critic & curator Sarah Kelleher.
This is an open discussion led by Sarah Kelleher who will share her thoughts, reflections and insight. Discussion topics will include the Anthropocene, our future place in this new epoch of environmental crisis. What role do artists play within the contemporary understanding and collaboration with the earth. In particular our relationship with land, providentialist belief systems and the precarity of future existence.
