Art in the Anthropocene: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on Performance, Politics, and Ecology
Charli Brissey (SMTD)
The Art in the Anthropocene: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on Performance, Politics, and Ecology symposium will bring together renowned artists and scholars across the fields of dance, science and technology studies, and women’s studies who are currently working at the intersections of performance, art, and ecology. It will consist of four workshops, three panel presentations, and three full performances. Through all of these activities, we will be examining the relationship between the arts and sciences during what is often referred to as ‘The Anthropocene,” meaning the current epoch in which human impact on Earthly geography is undeniable and irreversible. We will investigate our roles and responsibilities as artists and scholars making work in response to our current political-social-ecological climate.
