2.15 – 3.00pm Lecture: A Global Art Criticism for a Global Climate Crisis by Jason Farago, art critic, The New York Times

From Schiller and Hegel onward, art critics and philosophers of aesthetics have defined art in contrast to nature—but that distinction has collapsed in the epoch of the Anthropocene, when humans have become the authors of geology itself. This talk will consider how artists and curators have approached urbanisation, climate change, and extinction in the 21st century, from Hou Hanru’s Zone of Urgency (Venice Biennale, 2003) to Maria Stavrinaki’s Prehistory (Centre Pompidou, 2019). It will also assess the climate externalities of the global art market, and how fairs, biennials, and other nodes of the global art world might reshape themselves in a post-carbon economy.
