Susan Ballard: There is a story, too

Telling the stories of human relationships with nature at the end of the Holocene is one way to ruin a dinner party. In this evening talk, Su Ballard will tell us four short stories. Each story is a tale of humans and nature, all draw on her upcoming book Art and Nature in the Anthropocene: Planetary Aesthetics (Routledge, 2021).

Su Ballard is Associate Professor of Art History at Victoria University of Wellington Te  Herenga Waka. This talk is presented as a public programme for the exhibition On the Last Afternoon: Disrupted Ecologies and the Work of Joyce Campbell.
