Arts Hidden Forests: Connecting Art and Environmental Awareness

Speakers: James Prosek (Artist, Writer, and Naturalist), Tam Wai Ping, Lucas (Associate Professor, Department of Fine Arts, Chinese University of Hong Kong), Billy Hau (Principal Lecturer, HKU)
Moderator: Joyce Wong (Curator, Asia Society Hong Kong)

The speakers will discuss compelling topics that aim to interrogate relationships between contemporary art and the natural world, its historical implications and impact. James incorporates elements of wildlife in his artwork to ruminate the relationship between human desire and the fluidity of nature. Together they will initiate a dialogue to explore the changes that humans have made to disrupt the world’s ecosystems and share their thoughts on living in the Anthropocene through the lens of art, immersing the audience in a world that predates interconnectivity.
