Keynote: John Gerrard

Artist contributors:

Vivienne Dick : Clare Langan : Siobhan McDonald : Deirdre O'Mahony : Geraldine O'Neill : Garrett Phelan

and a viewing of Vera Klute: The Grand Scheme

introduction and conclusion: Yvonne Scott


A number of distinguished contemporary artists will each give a presentation about how their work expresses dimensions of human relationships with the physical environment in the current epoch, which has been described as the Anthropocene in recognition of how evidence of human activity is apparent in the planet’s geological layers, and of the threat to the ecosystem on which the species depends. The talks, illustrated with relevant examples of each artist’s work, will be followed by opportunities for questions and discussion.

Convened by Dr Yvonne Scott, Trinity College Dublin (scotty@tcd.ie)

Note: The title of this event 'In this brief time ... ' begins a sentence in Simon L Lewis and Mark A Maslin, The Human Planet, How we created the Anthropocene (Pelican, 2018), p. 3. The authors use this phrase in discussing the extremely short time span of human presence compared with Earth's 4.5 billion-year history and the extent of human impact in that brief period.
