The Art of Nature

As we career headlong through the Anthropocene period where human activity leaves it’s indelible and often destructive trace on the planet we ask: how do artists respond to this?

This forum brings together four diverse speakers who will discuss their own practice and perspective on nature along with Lisa Slade, the Assistant Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia. Come and hear what they have to say as well as attend to your burning questions.

Speakers are Garry Stewart – Artistic Director, Australian Dance Theatre, Lisa Slade – Assistant Director, Art Gallery of South Australia, Julie Gough – visual artist and Victoria Hunt (Director, Dancer, Choreographer).

Artists talk about their practice and perspective on nature.
