In conversation—Mandy Martin, Guy Abrahams, Bronwyn Johnson and Jason Smith

29 April, from 2.00pm to 3.00pm

This is a free event.

To celebrate Geelong Gallery’s participation in the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 festival and the exhibition Luminous relic, join us for a dynamic conversation with exhibiting artist Mandy Martin, Co-founder and CEO of CLIMARTE, Guy Abrahams, Executive Director of CLIMARTE, Bronwyn Johnson and Geelong Gallery Director, Jason Smith.

This event will be a collaborative examination of the ongoing and cumulative effects of industry on landscapes, fragile ecosystems, human conditions, and remind us of the social and political agency of the artist. The panel will discuss arts capacity to creatively engage and inspire action on climate change through a discussion on Luminous relic, developed through fieldwork—drawing, filming, photography and performance—in Geelong, specifically in relation to the Geelong Refinery.

Luminous relic is Geelong Gallery’s contribution to ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017, organised by CLIMARTE
