Looking North Through Art: Sophie Gerrard
“Looking North Through Art” is a series of online talks in two parts. Over the course of eight events, four artists – to be paired with writers/ researchers in the second round – explore concepts of landscape and nature in Scotland. Through discussing some of their projects and thoughts, speakers will provide alternative approaches and perspectives which stand in contrast with and move beyond mainstream narratives surrounding the idea of “Scottish landscape”. This series invites speakers and participants to reflect upon those themes through the lens of art and writing, guided by questions of climate change, ecocriticism and energy ethics. The first round of talks will run from August through October 2022, followed by the second part, currently scheduled for early 2023 (tbc).
The fourth and final event features the visual artist Sophie Gerrard. More information tba soon.
