Talk by Neal White: The Deep Field / Art and the Ecological Imaginary | 13 May 2022 | 15:00-17:00 | The Hague [RSVP]
The Deep Field; Art and the Ecological Imaginary
Neal White is an artist and researcher. His talk will address artistic and academic research in relation to ecology as shaped by scientific framing of knowledge of environmental issues. The talk will highlight an artistic project he is leading in collaboration with artist Tina O’Connell at Amstelpark, Amsterdam, supported by Mondriaan Funds and zone2source. Framed by his work with the Deep Field Project, a research initiative that involves a range of graduate researchers using concepts from the environmental humanities, engaging with methodological innovation, and experimental fieldwork, White reflects on the power relationships that shape interdisciplinary and epistemic/environmental encounters and the critical role of artistic researchers in shaping knowledge futures.
