Initiated by Richard Crawford, PhD student, Central Saint Martins

This group explores various discourses that relate to Art, Science and Nature.

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

They also look for opportunities together to exhibit art practices that have developed out of the theories explored through the interest group.

Meetings are open to all and will be held monthly (currently online) on Thursdays at 5pm to 6.30pm.

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.
