How does one live consciously and ethically in a dark time? What are the roles of artist and audience? Can we take aesthetic pleasure in art that implicates the loss of so much we love and cherish? These questions and more will be addressed by moderator Dale Jamieson, Professor of Environmental Studies and Philosophy, NYU, and speakers Yanoula Athanassakis of Environmental Humanities, NYU; Robert Hopkins, Professor of Philosophy, NYU; and Joel Sternfeld, artist and curator of Landscapes after Ruskin.
Co-sponsored by NYU’s Departments of Art History, Environmental Studies, and Philosophy; Environmental Humanities Event Series; and Grey Art Gallery.
