Anthropocene – Hello Symbiocene at Trinity College Dublin
I am delighted to share that I been invited to present my recent talk ‘GoodBye
Anthropocene – Hello Symbiocene‘ at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) for the ‘Art in the Anthropocene’ 3-day International Conference‘, on 7th June. This international conference is being organised by Prof Steve Wilmer and others through the Arts and Humanities Department in the Long Room Hub at TCD.
Its amazed me that my article and talk has had such a response already – I think I must have touched a common anxiety that we desperately need a new story like the Symbiocene to frame our efforts for a better and more beautiful world. I hope more people examine Glenn Albrecht’s detailed framework for the Symbiocene in his new book Earth Emotions: New Words for a New World (2019) (I have put a new podcast in which he speaks with his publisher at the end of this post).
I’m also delighted to have been invited by Imelda Healy to be part of an accompanying ‘Art in the Anthropocene’ Group Exhibition to the conference.
‘Art in the Anthropocene’ Exhibition
For the group exhibition I am joining Dorothy Cross, Mark Dion, Yvanna Greene, Steve Hurrel, Imelda Healy (curator), Ruth Le Gear, Siobhán McDonald, Helen O’Shea and Eoin Mac Lochlainn
There will be some short films, two sound pieces – ‘Seismic Sounds’ from Steve Hurrel and ‘Shark’, a BBC recording of Dorothy Cross – and there is also a marine installation at the Science centre.
The exhibition, curated by Imelda Healy, will run from the 7th to the 9th of June and will be in the Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin.
