How can the contemporary arts represent the non-human world? - Post-Grad Interest Group

Written by Post-Grad Community
Published date 06 August 2019
Initiated by Richard Crawford, PhD student, Central Saint Martins

This group will explore various discourses that relate Art, Science and Nature.

We will look at exhibitions and read selected texts on ecology, animal theory, museum studies, environmental science, art criticism and cultural studies.

We will also look for opportunities to exhibit art practices that have developed out of the theories we are exploring through the interest group.

Meetings are open to all and will be held monthly on Thursdays at 5.00 – 6.30 pm.

Join us for our first meeting of the new term will be held at the Wellcome Collection café 183 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BE on Thursday 3 October 2019.

Contact Richard Crawford for more information, or to express your interest in attending r.crawford1@arts.ac.uk

Richard Crawford‘s research interest is in contemporary animal art and he is looking at the ways it has impacted on museums of natural history.
