A very exciting Panel Session on “Ecological Art” at this year’s NES Colloquium will bring together an international group of ecological artists whose practice involves the examination, exploration and representation of climate change issues to present a visual, aesthetic alternative to the usual discourse on the issue.

As you may know, this year NES has expanded its interdisciplinary approach by inviting performers, eco-artists, and photographers to join in a discussion about the culture of climate change as well as share how they conceptualize climate change into art forms.
