Art&: Emergency of Emergencies–The Aesthetics and Politics of Climate Justice

September 15, 2022, 5:00 PM


Join us for a public talk by T. J. Demos, founder of the Center for Creative Ecologies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, about the intersections of contemporary art, radical politics, and ecology. Demos’ work looks at the places where art, activism, and visual culture oppose racial, colonial, and extractive capitalism, working toward social, economic, and environmental justice.

This presentation offers a reading of select aesthetic practices that connect with climate justice—specifically the analysis of climate propagandas by Jonas Staal; the forensic racial justice investigations of Imani Jacqueline Brown and Forensic Architecture; and the Indigenous futurism of Thirza Jean Cuthand.

This hybrid program is free and open to all. It will be held in person at Ostrove Auditorium and live-streamed via Zoom webinar for online participants. Registration can be found here. The recording will be made available at a later date on the Colby College Museum of Art’s YouTube Channel.

This program is cosponsored by the Colby College Environmental Studies Department.
